This small book for the pocket was in essence a guide to the Holy places in Jerusalem

It contains geographical and historical information about Jerusalem and its holy sites, with illustrated plates of these sites on the facing pages. Images include: the Temple Mount, the City of David, and Beit Yaakov Synagogue.
