Solomon's Temple dominates this bird's-eye plan of ancient Jerusalem. The plan is largely imaginary, but amazingly detailed. The title cartouche is contained in a banner held aloft by angels. This is the second state with keyed legends flanking the title banner and Dutch text on verso.

A nice impression with light toning along the edges of the sheet and an archivally repaired tear that enters 1" into image at bottom center.
