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. Dutch text on verso. A crack has formed in the plate at bottom right. Published by Jacob and Pieter Keur.
