Description
 
Marco Polo (1254-1324) can be considered the most famous Westerner who traveled eastbound to unseen-before places. His travels lasted 24 years and took him through Iraq, Persia, Mongolia, Tibet, India and China, to mention only a few. China in particular amazed him in its cultural sophistication, technology and standard of living, incomparable to any place he knew in the west. This book will allow the reader to fully understand the scope of his travels through Marco’s own words and the accompanying interpretations of later scholars and travelers. Photos of some of the sites, cities and landscapes that Marco went through are included, together with his accompanying descriptions, and other paintings and maps from the period. Full-color illustrations.
