Journey from Venice to Palestine, Mount Sinai and Egypt (ca. 1467) A beautifully illustrated account of a journey made from Italy to the Middle East. Although this book (known as Egerton 1900) was purported to reflect a journey made in 1465 by Gabriel Muffel, third son of the Nuremburg patrician Nicholas Muffel, the travelogue is, however, merely a German translation of an account of a journey made more than a century earlier undertaken by the Franciscan friar Niccolo da Poggibonsi.
