A partir de ahí, tras cobrar vida propia, el viaje fue editado en multiples ocasiones durante el s. XVII, al menos en alemán, holandés, francés, italiano e inglés.Al éxito de la obra contribuyó que tanto Olearius como sus traductores y sucesivos editores, al hilo de la breve descripción de su regreso de Persia yendo a la India y regresando a Europa desde ahí en barco por el cabo de Buena Esperanza, fuesen ampliando el contenido añadiendo información tomada de otras fuentes para describir otros territorios de Asia y de las Indias Orientales en los que Mandelslo no había estado, desde China hasta Japón, pasando por Siam o las Islas Filipinas. También estas modificaciones fueron cobrando vida propia hasta convertir el viaje de regreso en una obra completamente distinta y diferente del relato original de la embajada en Moscú y Persia.Las ediciones más completas de los que pasaron a conocerse como los viajes de Mandelslo, especialmente en lo que se refiere a la disposición de múltiples imágenes para ilustrar aquellos lejanos territorios, son las que Pieter Van der Aa imprimió en francés, en Leiden, en 1719. La narrativa original de Mandelslo la publicó como Voyages très curieux et très renommez, faits en Moscovie, Tartarie et Perse, en dos tomos en un volumen, con paginación corrida, en cuyo t tiutlo no aparecía el nombre de Mandelslo. En cambio, paradójicamente, la esencialmente apócrifa narrativa del viaje de Persia a la India con la descripción del este asiático con toda la suma acumulada de descripciones de aquellos territorios tomada de multiples fuentes, la publicó con el título de Voyages celebres & remarquables, faits de Perse. por Johann Albrecht von Mandelslo en otros dos tomos en un volumen, también con paginación corrida.Pero algo sucedió que no hemos sido capaces de averiguar, porque ocho años después, en 1727, los ejemplares no vendidos de esas dos obras pasaron a comercializarse, cambiándose las po.

Item Description: Michel Charles le Céne, Amsterdam, 1727. 2 volumes in 1, small folio. (12 1/8 x 7 5/8 inches). Titles printed in red and black. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 44 engraved maps, plans and views (31 folding), 19 in-text engraved illustrations. Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red and green morocco lettering pieces in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges A lovely copy of a noted illustrated work on Asia, including maps and views of India, China, and Japan. "Johann von Mandelslo was a friend of Adam Olearius and a former page of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp. Together Mandelslo and Olearius were sent by the Duke on an embassy to the Russian Czar and to the Shah of Persia [for the purpose of initiating trade relations with Russia, Tartary and Persia]. Mandelslo was authorized to leave the embassy in Persia and to continue his travels to the Far East. He went to Surat, Agra, and Goa in India, where he received great kindness from the English merchants, and he also visited Ceylon. He gives long accounts of the other parts of the Far East, which he did not visit personally. His return was made to England by sea via the Cape of Good Hope, which he visited in 1639" (Hill). Madelslo's narrative contains substantial information on the Far East. "Before his death, Mandelslo had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them bound with his numerous official accounts of the embassy" (Howgego). Following the first publication, Olearius added additional information to subsequent editions. A new edition in French translated by Wicquefort included still more additional material, including an account of the travels of Henri de Feynes to China, Formosa and Japan. The present edition published in Amsterdam in 1727 is a re-issue of the Van der Aa edition of 1719 (published in Leiden); both are celebrated as the best editions, being the most complete and with the largest number of illustrations. The plates include views and plans of London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, Capetown, Goa, Surat, Jedo (Tokyo), St. Helena, Mauritius, Madagascar, the Canary Islands, Java, Congo and elsewhere.

He visited India, Ceylon, Madagascar, West Africa (Congo), and returned four years later. His story gives a very vivid picture of luxury, vices, curiosity and absolute disregard for life under the despotic tyranny of the Moghul Empire under Shah Jahan. In the port of Surat he arrived in April 1638 after he went to Ahmedabad and Agra. Although his observations of life in the capital are useful, he apparently did not hear anything about the Taj Mahal, which at that time was in the sixth year of building.

Item Description: Hamburg, Christian Guth (printed by Johan Holwein, Schleswig), 1658., 1658. Folio. (32), 248, (36) pp. With engraved frontispiece by Christian Rothgiesser, full-page engraved author's portrait, double-page engraved map, and 21 large engravings in text, mostly signed by Rothgiesser; woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces. Contemporary blind-ruled leather, remnants of ties. First complete German edition of an important and entertaining travel account by Johann Albrecht von Mandelslo, edited by Adam Olearius. Mandelslo was attached to the diplomatic mission of Frederick III, Duke of Holstein-Gottorp, to Moscow and Persia. Frederick's aim was to negotiate a new trade route for Persian silk and to make his small duchy an important centre of European silk trade. After visiting Moscow, the mission continued along the Volga to Astrakhan and from there to Persia, crossing the Caspian Sea near Shamakhi. Via Ardabil, Qazvin and Kasan the party finally reached the capital, Isfahan. The ambassadors remained in Persia for several months (only to return without concrete results), but Mandelslo travelled further to the east. He sailed from Hormuz to Surat and proceeded through Gujarat to Agra, Lahore, Goa, Bijapur and Malaba, visiting Ceylon, Madagascar, the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena on his return voyage in 1639. Before his death 5 years later, he had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them with a third part containing descriptions of the Coromandel coast, Bengal, Siam, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Bantam, the Philippines, Formosa (Tai-wan), China and Japan. Small contemporary owner's entry ("Jos[eph] Baudler"?). Some foxing and brownstaining; slight tears in lower margin of pp. 31 and 137.

Item Description: Leiden: Pierre van der Aa, 1719., 1719. 2 volumes in one. Folio (12 2/8 x 8 inches). 2 half-titles, two vignette title-pages printed in red and black. Additional engraved title-page, engraved portrait, large engraved folding panorama, 16 folding or double-page and 7 full-page plates of views, 14 folding or double-page and 6 full-page maps, 19 vignette maps and views in the text, engraved head- and tail-pieces, and initials (some occasionally heavy browning, worming at inner margin to three central gatherings, 3 leaves strengthened at fore-edge, title-page to first volume tipped to dedication leaf and both mounted on a stub, one plate detached, some leaves loose). Contemporary half vellum, marbled paper boards (extremities a bit worn, endpapers renewed). Provenance: with the engraved armorial bookplate of George A. Leon on the front paste-down. Later edition in French. An account of the voyage of the German embassy to Persia in 1633, sponsored by the Duke of Holstein. Olearius, who also accompanied the mission with this friend Mandelslo, first published his account in 1647. While the German ambassadors remained in Persia, Mandelslo continued to India, sailing from Ormuz in 1638. Passing through Surat, he journeyed onto Agra, unfortunately he fails to mention the Taj Mahal which had been under construction for the previous six years, instead fleeing to Lahore, where he hoped to evade a vengeful relative of a man he had killed in Persia. His travels then took him to Goa and Ceylon. His account is full of the exotic, luxurious, immoral, and cruel way of life of the Mogul empire in India, then ruled by Shah Jahan. The plates include fine maps and views of Persia, the Mogul Empire, Japan, and the islands and Dutch outposts of the East Indies, including Sumatra, the Malaccas, Java, Bantam, and Batavia.

(Bound after) II: Saadi (ed. Adam Olearius). Persianischer Rosenthal. In welchem viel lustige Historien, scharffsinnige Reden, und nützliche Regeln. Ibid., Johann Holwein f. Johann Naumann, 1654. (52), 196, (30) pp, final blank f. With separate engr. title page, engr. portrait and 33 large text engravings by Rothgießer. Contemp. vellum. First edition of this famous travel report, containing "many interesting details of the eternally plentiful oriental world" (cf. Henze). While the engraved maps depicts Southeast Asia from Persia to Japan and Java, the remaining engravings mainly illustrate the customs of the Arab world, of Persia and India. "Mandelslo was a German traveller and adventurer (1616-44). Originally a page at the court of the Duke of Holstein-Gottorp, in 1635 Mandelslo was attached to the duke's embassy to Moscow and Persia, a mission intended to open trade negotiations. The Duke's librarian and mathematician, Adam Olearius accompanied the embassy as its secretary. The ambassadors themselves remained in Persia, but in 1638 Mandelslo, feeling the need for wider travel, obtained permission to travel on to India. Sailing from Hormuz, he landed at Surat in April 1638 then travelled through Gujarat to Agra, Lahore, Goa, Bijapur and Malabar. He sailed for England from Surat in January 1639, calling at Ceylon and Madagascar, but was to die of smallpox five years later. Before his death, Mandelslo had entrusted his rough notes to Olearius, who subsequently published them bound with his numerous official accounts of the embassy" (Howgego I, 677). This first edition is significantly rarer than its later reworkings and translations; ABPC lists a single complete copy at auctions of the last decades (Sotheby's, Oct 11, 2005, lot 177, £3,400). - Bound with this is the first German edition of Saadi's "Gulistan", also edited by Olearius. - Old armorial bookplate (name erased) and bookplate of Eivind Hassler (1939-2009) on front pastedown.
