Frontispiece of: Vervolg op Flavius Josephus: of Algemene historie der joodsche naatsie.

The personification of Historiography, a winged woman, writing in a book, sits on a staircase surrounded by putti and other figures. At the bottom of the stairs, Father Time plays with a group of putti. In the background, a young man falls from a wall with a flaming torch. The buildings behind the wall are on fire. On the right, beside the personification of Historiography, the bust of Flavius Josephus (ca. 37-100) a first-century Romano-Jewish historian and military leader, best known for The Jewish War, who was born in Jerusalem—then part of Roman Judea—to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry.
