Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This reproduction of the copperplate engraving of "De Heylige en Wytvermaerde Stadt Ierusalem Eerst Genaemt Salem" was originally published in Amsterdam in 1665 by Claes Janszoon Visscher for a Dutch bible. The name translates to "the holy and expanded city of Jerusalem, first known as Salem."
This attractive bird's-eye view of Jerusalem shows the city laid out in blocks, with 36 important locations identified by name through a key index.
In the center of the map, King Solomon's temple is depicted, while along the bottom are colorful illustrations of biblical scenes, including the crucifixion at Calvary.
