AA, Pieter van der. [A monumental panorama of classical Jerusalem after Hollar]
Ierusalem. Leiden, 1729. Three sheets conjoined as issued, total 390 x 1980mm. A very fine impression
This is arguably the most spectacular of all early prospects of Jerusalem. The sheer scale of it shows a level of detail not seen on anything published before or long after.This panormaic view depicts the ancient city during the time of Christ, as seen from the east, based on biblical and other various historical sources. A table to the right lists 55 place names referenced to the view. According to Laor, this prospect is a much-enlarged version of a fomer work by the great Bohemian engraver, Wenceslaus Hollar, who spent most of his working career in London. The small plan to the upper left corner is, as noted in the text above, attributed to Villalpando. LAOR: 933.
