This historical plan of Jerusalem is derived from the description of the Dutch theologian Johannes Henricus Coccejus. The plan includes an extensive key at bottom and is drawn from the ‘writings of Josephus’. He was a first century Roman Jewish historian. It illustrates the cities of Melchisedich and David. It shows the Mount of Olives, Herod’s Tomb and the encampments of Pompeii and the Assyrians. It was published in Christoph Weigel’s ‘Descriptio Orbis Antiqui in XLIV’. It is quite probably engraved by Michael Kauffer. Shirley, R.W. (BL Atlases) T.WEIG-2a, 33.
