About this Item

Quarto. XXIII, [1], [677]-984pp. Uncut and unopened copy! Original gilt-, and blind-stamped blue cloth, with gold lettering on spine. Frontispiece. This third volume tells the story of the Abbé's journey back to France with dispatches sent by de la Haye, the French Viceroy, from St. Thomé. His spirit of adventure and love of travel for its own sake are clearly evinced. He might have reached France more easily and quickly by taking his passage in the 'Soleil d'Orient,' which left Surat on January 4, and arrived at La Rochelle on July 12, 1674; but in spite of his troublesome experiences in the Mediterranean, the Syrian Desert, and the Persian Gulf, on his outward journey, he preferred to return from Surat by the same route in reverse. As a result, this part of the Journal gains immensely in interest. Contents: Introduction; Voyage from Madras to Bombay; Journey from Bombay to Tarafur; Journey to Daman and Surat; Carré's stay at Surat; Voyage from Surat to Bandar Arras; Journey from Bandar Arras to Basra; Journey from Basra to Aleppo; Journey from Aleppo to Messina; The revolution at Messina; Journey from Messina to Marseilles; Index. This volume is complete with all its plates and folded maps. Minor staining on front cover. Head and tail of spine slightly rubbed. Binding in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition.
