by Dunn, Ross E

Condition: As New/Near Fine - Price Clipped


Berkeley CA: University of California Press, 1987 Known as the greatest traveler of premodern times, Abu Abdallah ibn Battuta was born in Morocco in 1304 and educated in Islamic law. At the age of twenty-one, he left home to make the holy pilgrimage to Mecca. This was only the first of a series of extraordinary journeys that spanned nearly three decades and took him not only eastward to India and China but also north to the Volga River valley and south to Tanzania. The narrative of these travels has been known to specialists in Islamic and medieval history for years. Ross E. Dunn's retelling of these tales, however, is the first work of scholarship to make the legendary traveler's story accessible to a general audience.. 1st US Ed... Hardcover. As New/Near Fine - Price Clipped.
