What Our Customers Say...

Description

An Important Work, Early Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The second, enlarge edition of this volume following Marco Polo's travels step by step, as well as Nicoló De' Conti's, including the eleven maps contained in the first limited edition. With notes and appendices by N.M. Penzer, who also masterly introduces this book in over sixty large pages.

This book has been edited from John Frampton's translation in Elizabethan times, still using original expressions of a time when "English was a language of the morning for everybody."

In the publisher's original cloth binding and clipped dustwrapper. With previous owner's inscription to front free endpaper: "Charles P. Wallace in memory of 1s & 2nd June 1939 from ADW."
