Jerusalem by Stoopendaal
Great bird’s eye plan of the holy city surrounded by engravings of religious icons, Salomon 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 and at bottom is a plan of the Temple Ezechiels. The map is copied from Nicolas Berchem’s 1663 map of Jerusalem.
