That's not isometric, it's oblique.
Question.... If it is isometric what is oblique??????
I'll give you a clue.
First plane, flat view.
Second plane, receding not converging, Greek to IR
All planes receding, not converging.
Linear/Two point linear
All planes receding, and converging., Post IR

Read it again Thanos.
Take note of the (also known as Isometric) in which the buildings are viewed obliquely with the front sides in undistorted elevation and the orthagonal sides.

That's why I said they were pretty much stuck with oblique throughout most of the middle ages.
Linear perspective came late, during the IR along with the camera.
That's why I said "Bruno was the main man".
Yes we know about the Chinese, and the Arab traders borrowed it and introduced it into Europe. Yada yada yada.
Anyway. The picture you posted is not isometric, it is oblique.
Go find another book. This time read it and try to understand it.
Would you like me to draw you a picture?
Linear perspective, cube.
All will be revealed.
