Comment: There are another five maps from Sweden in this catalogue. They are all from the same edition of Bunting: "Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturaethetar Een Reesebook." Stockholm, 1595. This map differs from the others in terms of the paper and size and hence, it is possible that it is from an earlier edition of 1588. We were not able to locate it anywhere to verify the edition. Exceptionally rare. Not found in Laor.
