Book Description

'Translated and Edited with a Preliminary Essay on the Intercourse between China and the Western Nations previous to the Discovery of the Cape Route'. Containing the travels of Friar Odoric of Pordenone, 1316-30, and letters and reports from missionary friars from Cathay and India, 1292-1338, in English translation. With a list of 'illustrations from drawings by the author'. This and volume II (First Series 37) have continuous main pagination. The supplementary material includes the 1866 annual report. This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volume first published in 1866. Owing to technical constraints it has not been possible to reproduce the 'reduced and condensed translation of the carta catalana of 1375' and the 'Sketch Map to Illustrate Ibn Battuta's Travels in Bengal' which appeared in the first edition of this volume.
