This detailed print was issued in an edition of Philip Cluver’s Introductio in Universam Geographiam that was published in London by John Nicholson in 1711. As such, an English translation of the original Latin text has been provided. It’s useful in describing the contents of the three-part image.

The upper view shows King Solomon’s temple, supported by large ramparts. The lower half is divided between a diagram outlining the construction of Noah’s Ark and the interior of Solomon’s Temple – the Holiest of Holies in which the Ark of the Covenant, barely visible in the background, was kept.
