Article descriptionOriginal antique copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. This map was published in the historical atlas by Ch. Weigel in Augsburg. J.B. Homann worked together with Ch. Weigel as an engraver in this atlas. A strong and fine impression of this detailed historical plan or map of Jerusalem, engraved after the scripts of I.H. Coccejo. Below we find a detailed table with explanations. Johann Christoph Weigel, known as Christoph Weigel the Elder (9 November 1654 – 5 February 1725), was a German engraver, art dealer and publisher. He was born at Redwitz, Free imperial city of Eger in Egerland, and died in Nuremberg, aged 70. The cartographer Weigel worked around 1719 in Nürnberg and his maps are showing the typical style of this period in map making in Southern German. He worked very close as with Johann B. Homann in Nürnberg. All his maps were hand colored in outline and decorative body color immediatelly in his printing house, after they were printed.
