Nice example of Bunting's map of the Exodus of the Iraelites from Egypt.

This detailed map shows the route taken by the Israelites in the Exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land. The map is very graphic with a vignette of the Pharaoh drowning in the Red Sea and Jonah on the back of a whale in the Mediterranean.  The map extends from Jerusalem and Median in the East to Babylon, Mephis and most of the Nile River Delta in the West, with.

This scarce map is from Heinrich Bunting's Itinerarum Sacrae Scripturae..  It is believed that more than 60 editions of Bunting's Itinerarum were published in various languages between 1581 and 1757.  Bunting's work describes the travels of religious figures in the Bible and was the most complete summary of geography of the Bible of this period.  Itinerarum Sacrae Scripturae was first printed in Helmstadt in 1581 and was produced in numerous editions in Germany.  The book was so popular, it was also issued with text in Danish, Swedish, Dutch, Czech, and English.
