Book Description Innocêncio 2613-2614; List NYPL Arabia, p. 167 (vol 1 only); Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p. 8 (vol. 1 only); cf. Howgego, to 1800, B47. First and only edition of the Portuguese translation (from an Arabic manuscript) of the travel account of Abu Abdullah Mohammed ibn Batuta (1304-1368/69), known in the West as the Islamic Marco Polo. Once little-known, his account of his travels was discovered in the 19th century and has now become a classic of travel literature. At the time of publication, Moura's translation was the most complete edition in any language. "While on a pilgrimage to Mecca he [Ibn Batuta] made a decision to extend his travels throughout the whole of the Islamic world. Possibly the most remarkable of the Arab travellers, he is estimated to have covered 75,000 miles in forty years" (Howgego). His account, known as the Rihla, is esteemed for its lively descriptions of his travels, giving notable information on the history, geography and botany of the countries and cities Ibn Batuta visited.The wrapper of volume 2 has some damage to the spine, otherwise good. With only a few spots in one leaf of volume 1 and an occasional spot in volume 2. A very good copy, wholly untrimmed and unopened. Bookseller Inventory # G7SDXXV992D0
