Map of the Land of Israel based upon the commentary of the Vilna Gaon. Displays boundaries divided according the Twelve Tribes, along with the journies of the Israelites. Although a similar map was appended to the Bible with the Gaon’s commentary (Grodno & Vilna, 1820), this is the first independent publication of a map of the Land of Israel according to the Gaon.
