Volume IV of the Devisement du Monde follows Marco Polo through the empire of Khubilai Khan. He describes famous towns in the east and travels from Peking down to far south-west China via Xian, the old city of the first emperor, Chengdu, capital of Sichuan, and Kunming, capital of Yunnan, near the frozen border of Tibet and the tropical forests of Burma. The text contains precious information on the curious sights and customs he encounters - the extraordinary bridges, the silk worms, the shells used as currency, the struggles against gigantic saurians, the women who offer themselves to strangers, shamanistic rituals … This volume lets us discover the geographic and cultural diversity of deepest China.
