Abstract: Its is known that the Jacobian J of the Klein curve is isogenous to $ {{\mathbf{E}}^3}$ for a certain elliptic curve E. We compute explicit equations for E and prove that J is in fact isomorphic to $ {{\mathbf{E}}^3}$. We also identify the subgroup of J generated by the image of the Weierstrass points of the curve under an Albanese embedding, and we show that it is isomorphic to $ {\mathbf{Z}}/2{\mathbf{Z}} \times {({\mathbf{Z}}/7{\mathbf{Z}})^3}$.
