This detailed bird's-eye plan was one of the most popular plans of Jerusalem during the seventeenth century. While it is imaginary, it provides great detail of the city walls and streets, with 36 principal sites numbered and keyed to a table in scrolls in the top corners. At bottom are views of "Temple Ezechiels" and "Tempel Salomons". Isaac van der Putte was a Dutch publisher who acquired Danckerts plate for Jerusalem (1646), on which this map is based.
