"Heinrich Bünting, a theological commentator from Hanover, first published his 'Itinerarium' in 1581. It is illustrated by several curious woodcut maps.
Bunting's book was reprinted at least ten times in several languages throughout the next seventy years. At least two further sets of blocks were produced, in addition to normal variations in the type occurring, as it was usually inset separately into the wood blocks."
