"Jerusalem, capital city under David and Solomon, renowned for its Temple and the miracles performed there. It is now under the domination of the Turks." This is the description which Mondhare, a French publisher, gave to this completely imaginary view of the Holy City. Near the Dome of the Rock with its characteristic octagonal shape, appears a Greek ediface as well as 14 crescent-crested minarets, but only two spires with crosses. The most extraordinary - and illusory - item is the Brook of Kidron, depicted here as a wide river flowing through the Valley of Josaphath.
