Description

Scarce old color example of Jacques Chereau's view of Jerusalem, published in Paris.

Chereau's town-view of Jerusalem is very rare.  It includes a numbered (1-36) key in lower margin.

The view was first engraved by Aveline and first published in 1692 by Crepy.  The present example is the rare Jacques Chéreau re-issue, which can be differentiated from Chereau by the reworking of the plate and addition of the number 96 at the top right.

Condition Description
Early color, with the addition of black coloring to create a framing affect, likely in the early 20th Century.
