This fascinating and beautiful map is an elaborate depiction of the ancient city of Jerusalem as it appeared in the mid-sixteenth century.

At the center of the map are the ruins of the desecrated Temple of Solomon. The territories on either side contain many biblical and historical places and names such as the homes of Pontius Pilate, King Herod, of David, of the high priest Caiaphas and even that of Anna the prophetess from the Gospel of Luke. The Garden of Gethsemane is depicted outside the majestic walls which surrounded the city proper.

A number of Islamic architectural edifices are also depicted. The initials IC (Jesus Christ) are superimposed on a building in the lower right quadrant. Text in Italian below the map and on the verso describes the city and its biblical heritage, and one page of the verso is in Hebrew. In addition, a close up view of important buildings of the city is included on the verso.

Condition: This map is in very fine condition with slightly darker toning running down the length of the centerfold.
