Great bird's-eye plan of ancient Jerusalem after Juan Bautista Villalpando's plan. Engravings of temple vessels, religious icons, Solomon and a high priest flank the plan. At the top is a large elevation of the Temple of Solomon. This map was originated by Bastiaan Stoopendaal in 1688, and then revised by Daniel Stoopendaal. Daniel Stoopendaal's imprint is illegible and a crack appears in the plate at bottom right. Dutch text on verso.

There is slight show-through of text on verso and a light impression. Issued folding, now pressed with a tiny worm hole along the fold at left. A tear that enters image 1.5" at right and a small chip in left margin that just enters neatline, have both been repaired on verso with old paper.
