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.
Ne a Venise en1254, Marco Polo a dix-sept ans quand son pere l'emmene faire un voyage qui le conduit au bout du monde connu: en Chine. La, il sert l'empereur Koubilai Khan pendant dix-sept ans et visite tout l'Extreme-Orient avant de rentrer chez lui avec beaucoup de choses a raconter. C'est pendant qu'il est en prison a Genes qu'il dicte le recit de ce qu'il a vu: Le Livre des Merveilles. Apres avoir couru mille dangers, Marco Polo est mort dans son lit, a Venise, a l'age de soixante-dix ans.
