Very rare separately plan of the Jerusalem engraved by Joannes van Doetecum Jr. Variant to Poortman, Kaarten in Bijbels, map 64. In lower part the copper plate has been shortened for about one centimetre.

The Van Doetecum brothers had developed a special technique of etching, so closely resembling the quality of engraving that their prints have been frequently described as engravings. Contemporaries most valued their technique through which the Van Doetecums were able, with a minimum of effort, to imitate engraving and to produce a smooth gradation of tone. Until recent times art historians paid little attention to the brothers who were considered ‘reproduction engravers’, but since the studies of Oberhuber, Mielke and Riggs they are considered to be original and important graphic artists. After the death of Lucas in the early eighties of the sixteenth century Jan returned to the northern Netherlands, where he then worked with his sons Jan the Younger and Baptista. Jan engraved important maps, such as the sea charts for Lucas Waghenaer’s Spieghel and Thresoor der Zeevaert and the maps after Petrus Plancius (1592), which were so important to the Dutch explorers. The Van Doetecum family also made the illustrations for the famous itineraries of Jan Huygen van Linschoten, Gerrit de Veer and Olivier van Noort. Moreover the Van Doetecums built up an important own stock of maps, history prints and art prints. In his native town Deventer Jan made some highly interesting anti-catholic prints.
