A rare map of Jerusalem showing the time period of Christ's Crucifiction. Detailed map of the city with several vignettes on the margins including the Crucifiction. Probably separately published as a broadsheet. Florimi was creating unique city views in his time, like this of Jerusalem, and as many ahead of their time, he was not well respected by his contemporaries.
