VESCONTE, Pietro. [Early Plan of Jerusalem from a C14th manuscript]
[Untitled plan of Jerusalem.] Hanover, Christian Wechelius, 1611. 195 x 260mm.
Plan of ancient Jerusalem and surrounding country as far as Bethany, as drawn by Pietro Vesconte (fl. 1310-30) for Marino Sanudo's 'Liber Secretorum Fidelibus de Crucis' c.1320. This manuscript work was presented to Pope Clement V to encourage a new crusade. This engraving was the first time that the original map was published, retaining the original's lack of a conventional single reading view. Thus the letters, buildings and palm trees are drawn at random angles. LAOR: 1145.
