16mo. 127p Altera editio. Latin text. Disbound. A scarce account of Busbecw's travels of how as he traveled from Constantinople to the sultan's court at Amasia. He and his companions encountered some Turks digging up stones from the ruins to use for new buildings. They were horrified when the workman uncovered a beautiful statue from antiquity and the workman smashed it to bits. When they expressed their outrage, the workmen jeered at them and asked if they had planned to worship it and pray to it. He also found a coppersmith who had melted down ancient coins to make new copper kettles. This is the second edition of a work that is seldom seen. OCLC: 63795716. References: XVoet 852; Ind. Aur.
