This apparently unrecorded derivate of Büntings second world map comes from a Czech translation of Büntings Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura, translated by Daniel Adam Veleslavina (1546-1599 - Czech humanist) and published in Prague in 1592. The map is totally different from the first woodblock. Among others, there is a different monster in the Indian Ocean.
Shirley mentions the existence of other woodblocks but seems not to have seen one.
