Single Sheet (sheet size 12 x 16 1/4 inches). (Good impression, slightly faded, ageing).

A stunning view of Solomon's Temple and its forecourts, also known as the First Temple or Holy Temple in ancient Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount (Mount Zion).
From Bunting's Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae. Das ist Ein Reisebuch, [-ander Theil] uber di gantze Heilige Schrifft. -- De monetis et mensuris sacrae scripturae.
Shortly after Solomon had ascended the throne, he set to work. In the fourth year of his reign he laid the foundation, and the building was completed within seven and a half years. The erection of the Temple of Solomon was an epoch-making event, not only in the history of Israel, but for the whole world.
The generally accepted chronology of completion of the temple dates to the year 1005 BC. With regard to architecture and design, it is known as one of the most remarkable Biblical structures ever built. The dedicatory services lasted seven days - Holy week in Israel. "May the Lord graciously accepted the work, did manifest itself, as a cloud filled the sacred spaces after the priest had gone, 'the glory of the Lord filled the house of God'."
Heinrich Bunting was a Protestant professor of theology at Hanover. The Itinerarium was an exceedingly popular work, running to ten editions in seven languages over a period of seventy years from its first publication. The book describes the travels of the religious figures of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as well as its geography, accompanied by some interesting maps that take more than a little liberty with the actualities. The first part begins with the definition of the German mile and the biblical stadium, gives a list of biblical place-names with their coordinates, describe Jerusalem and the walla, gates, buildings mentioned in the Bible, before proceeding with the lives and journeys of the patriarchs, moses and Isrealites, Joshua, and concluding with the Maccabean Wars.
