Beautiful and fully engraved bird's-eye plan of the holy city flanked by engravings of religious icons, Solomon and a high priest. Reportedly after Vallapando's imaginary city plan, the map was published in a Dutch Bible. At the top is a large and ornate elevation of the Temple of Solomon. The map is a reduced version of Bastiaan Stoopendaal's earlier map of Jerusalem with the bottom vignettes removed.
