0.00 CHF

This is the first volume from a projected series of six based on the Devisement du monde. The text in question was written in the late XIIIth century and is one of the major sources on voyages made into Asia during this period. Philippe Ménard and his research group have based their work not only on previous studies, but also on the manuscript tradition as a whole. An introduction, a critical text accompanied by numerous notes and variants, an onomastic index and a vast glossary complete this volume, which runs up to chapter 42 of the original text.
