Abstract

The author gives a summary of A Pilgrimage to Palestine in 1521 C. E. published by I. Ben-Zevi in the series "Library of Palestinology" and points out that the Traveller intended to describe mainly the economic life of the countries he visited. The ancient map published together with The Pilgrimage may not have been drawn up by the Traveller because of the following considerations: 1) the handwriting is different, 2) the places marked on the map do not correspond to those described in the text, 3) the spelling of the place names is different. On the other hand there are reasons to believe that the text and the map belong to the same author. There remains the possibility that the Traveller drew the map some time after having, written the text, and that he corrected the spelling on base of his knowledge of the Arabic pronounciation. He may also have found out, that Tripoli lies outside the limits of Palestine.
