Notes German text on verso. Wood block map of Asia in the form of a Pegasus. Bunting's work Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura.. was essentially a theological commentary with other maps of great curiosity. This map of Asia is presented as the mythical winged horse, Pegasus. The head represents Asia Minor with the mouth at Istanbul. The wings portray Central Asia and Siberia with the Caspian Sea laying horizontally between the wings and the saddle. Persia is delineated on the horse blanket with the forelegs forming Arabia. The hind legs represent the Indian and Malay peninsulas. A ship, a sea creature and mermaids fill the seas.
