Accompagnes de l'histoire des Sarasins et Tartares, et precedez d'une introduction concernant les voyages et les nouvelles decouvertes des principaux voyageurs. The Hague: J. Neaulme, 1735. Neaulme's excellent reissue of Pieter van der Aa's enlarged edition of these voyages (from 1729), now with a new title. Two quarto volumes. Approximately 11 x 8.5 inches. [x] pages, columns 1-156, pages 157-161, [7] pages, columns 1-67, [5] pages, columns 1-82, [4] pages, columns 1-161, [8] pages, columns 1-132, pages. 133-136; [vi] pages, columns 1-66, pages 67-69, columns 1-38, [1] page, pages 1-4, columns 5-44, 1-162, pp. 163-185, columns 1-96, [2] pages, pages 1-2, columns 3-26, [1] page, columns 1-62, [1] page [note: this book is bound with some pages traditionally numbered and some pages with two columns each numbered]. With five folded engraved maps after van den Aa inserted, and eight half-page intertextual copper engravings. Bound in contemporary full mottled calf, spines tooled in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, brown gilt morocco lettering labels, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled endleaves, all edges stained red. Title-pages printed in red and black. Joints cracking, binding worn and chipped, two bookplates in volume I, and three bookplates in volume II (including that of Louis de Givenchy). Some minor soiling in text, and a few leaves with minor damage. Generally a good set. This book is an excellent description of travels throughout Asia, including Armenia, Persia, etc. Perhaps most interestingly, is Muller's translation of the voyages of Marco Polo ("Marc Paul, Venitien") in volume II. Upon van der Aa's death, Neaulme took over his inventory, and reissued this book with new title-pages and advertisements. Brunet I, 785. Lust 244. From the collection of a gentleman of New York.
