The scarce second illustrated edition of Ignaz Eggs' (I. von Rheinfelden's) Neue Jerosolymitanische Pilger-Fahrt. The author, a Franciscan monk, gives an account of the Capuchin missions in Asia and Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

He wrote a description of these journeys from 1655 to 1656, which appeared for the first time (without illustrations) in 1664. It was reissued in 1667, this time with numerous copper engravings (illustrations and maps of the Holy Land and the Battle of the Dardanelles), woodcuts (of Jerusalem, Morea and other places) and supplements. Further editions were published in the following decades in Dillingen and Augsburg (1699, published by Maria Magdalena Utzschneider).
