This is a rare view of Jerusalem from Schenk's important town atlas. Drawn from Cornelius de Bruyn's panorama of the city, but reduced into a square format. The Latin title is at lower right, Hierosolyma Judeae medeterranean urbs....
There is a faint brown ink title in the upper margin and the bottom corners are torn, well away from the image.
