The Travels of Marco Polo

The Travels of Marco Polo

Book - 2002
Rate this:
The reissue of a facsimile of the classic 1926 edition of The Travels of Marco Polo. Beginning from the traditional lyrical Marsden translation, Komroff corrected it against Henry Yule's magisterial two-volume work, including a chapter missing from the Marsden. The artist Witold Gordon created 32 two-colour woodcut illustrations for the original edition, published again here for the first time in over fifty years. The Travels of Marco Polo remains a wondrous adventure narrative. Chronicling the thirteenth-century world from Venice, his birthplace, to the far reaches of Asia, Marco Polo tells of the foreign peoples he meets as he travels by foot, horse and boat through places including Persia, the land of the Tartars, Tibet, India and, most importantly, China.
