Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae. Das ist: Ein Reisebuch, Uber die gantze heilige Schrifft, in zwey Bücher geteilet... Zuvor gemehret mit einem Büchlein De monetis et mensuris... Insonderheit aber mit einer feinen nützlichen Erklerung des Buches Josua... Mit einer Vorrede des Herrn D. Martini Chemnitii.

Early German edition of Bünting's Itinerarium illustrated with 12 (10 double-page) woodcut maps and plans: 2 world maps (including the famous world map in the form of a clover leaf (Shirley 142) with the three principal continents, Europe, Asia and Africa, are arranged in the form of a clover leaf with Jerusalem at the center. Three countries lie outside this trefoil: England, Scandinavia, and in the lower left hand corner, America. Sea monsters and mermaids adorn this uniquely designed cartographic curiosity.
Other land mark maps caricatures Asia in the form of Pegasus and Europe as a Queen: one of the most remarkable early cartographic curiosities. Spain is shown with a crown indicating its leadership in Europe. Italy as the right arm and Denmark the left. Although apparently female, it has been suggested that the figure represents Emperor Charles V.
Asia as Pegasus, Africa, two of the Holy Land, Egypt, map of the Eastern Mediterranean and plans of Jerusalem and the temple.
Together with: Uber das Buch Josua;
Together with: De monetis et mensuris sacrae scripturae.
