Incunabula in which Pablo Hurus, in his Zaragoza printing house, in 1498 offers the most richly illustrated edition of this text which had previously seen significant editions. Blocks of wood were used from previous editions based on the drawings of Erhard Reuwich. Seven panoramic views, fold out plans (that which represents the Holy Land measuring more than one meter), are included in this Mainz edition from 1486. The view of Rome only appears in this edition and is inspired by that in the Liber chronicarum of H. Schedel, edition of A. Koberger from 1493. Another 14 drawings represent buildings, groups of people, animals and alphabets, are framed within typically Spanish xylographic borders. A full page drawing shows an allegorical scene of Mainz and 66 drawings recount evangelical events.

The lists of pilgrims who visit the Holy Land was much appreciated and edited in the following two centuries.
