Scarce imaginary woodcut view of the holy city of Jerusalem seen from the east. Only a few place names are shown, including the City of David, the Temple, Mt. Zion and the Kidron River. Bunting first published a similar view of Jerusalem in his Itinerarium Sacra Scripturae, or Travels According to the Scriptures, in 1581. A description of Biblical lands, it was a popular book that was reprinted many times. This reduced-sized version was published in a Dutch edition. Not in Laor.
Several small spots, minor toning, and trimmed close to neatline at right.
