King David's Jerusalem:
Antiquarian Maps and Scenic Views

© University of Connecticut Libraries.

The city of Jerusalem holds a fascination for people around the world. Scenes from the city were often pictured in popular publications during the 19th century. This exhibit contains lithographs, wood carvings, and wood block prints of major sites and buildings including scenes of the Temple, the Wailing Wall, and the Tower of David.

The exhibit also includes engraved maps. The maps are primarily by American cartographers and reflect the beauty and accuracy of American mapmakers from the period 1750-1937.

The exhibit is on loan from the collection of Martin D. Gold, an active collector and dealer in anitquarian books, paintings, and prints for over forty years.
