Beautifully hand-colored engraved view of Jerusalem from Jacob Savry's famous 17th century bible.

Jerusalem is illustrated as reported in Genesis 14, verse 18, with a scene showing Solomon in the foreground and the Crucifixion of Christ on Mt. Cavalry in the lower left.

The view was originally by Visscher, and was published in 1643, this state (the second) was issued in 1648, and a line under the key is amended accordingly.

The key in the lower left enumerates 36 buildings labeled throughout the city.

This view, in its Visscher and Savry versions, dominate Dutch understanding of the city in the mid-17th century.
