The Travels of Marco Polo
The Travels of Marco Polo | Marco Polo
Marco Polo's account of his journey throughout the East in the thirteenth century was one of the earliest European travel narratives, and it remains the most important. The merchant-traveler from Venice, the first to cross the entire continent of Asia, provided us with accurate descriptions of life in China, Tibet, India, and a hundred other lands, and recorded customs, natural history, strange sights, historical legends, and much more. From the dazzling courts of Kublai Khan to the perilous deserts of Persia, no book contains a richer magazine of marvels than the Travels. This edition, selected and edited by the great scholar Manuel Komroff, also features the classic and stylistically brilliant Marsden translation, revised and corrected, as well as Komroff's Introduction to the 1926 edition.

Squeee, I‘m excited!! It‘s been 13 years since I‘ve been to California. I used to travel there all the time in the 90s and even lived in Southern Cali for a while. So now I‘m going back!! Well, only for a few days to visit friends and not before February. But I‘m excited as I‘ve missed this place so much! One thing that‘s on my bucket list: The last bookstore!❤️ Is it weird that I‘m already mentally compiling book lists for the long flights? 🤣
