About This Item

Paris: Chez Louis Billaine, en la grand' Salle du Palais, a la Palme, 1667. First French edition Three volumes, pp.[xxii, ii (blank), viii], 532, [32]; [xvi], 578, [50]; [10], 304, [38], [2, blank]; [xiv], 226, [8], [1, Privilege du Roy]; 28 folding maps. First volume without half-title. A very good set handsomely bound in full mottled calf, gilt panelled spines to style. Occasional scattered light foxing. Luis del Marmol Caravajal (1520-1600) served as a soldier to Carlos V and Felipe II, fighting in Africa where he was captured and jailed. He learnt Arabic during his eight years imprisonment in Algiers, and on his release travelled extensively in northern Africa. His writing is focused on Spanish commercial interests in Africa, and he provides a valuable source on the consumer goods valued in Europe in his day. First published in Granada, in Spanish, in two folio volumes, 1573-99. Brunet III, 1440
