8vo, xvi, 355, and 3 maps. Translated and edited from the Castilian with an introduction by Guy Le Strange. "First published at Valladolid in 1604, this book has never before been translated into any other language. The author was a Persian Moslem who became a Spanish Roman Catholic. During his long journey from Isfahan to Valladolid he kept a careful diary. His description of Persia and its wars agains t the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century, his succinct account of the Safavi rule as first established, and his report of the system of government in the golden age of Shah Abbas, are full of interesting and valuable details. Finally the journal of his travels through Russia, Germany, and Italy to Spain is quaintly interesting." One of the Broadway Travellers series. Dust jacket spine slightly darkened. Fine copy in near fine dust jacket. N° de réf. du libraire 5403
