Title: Relations de voyages et textes géographiques arabes, persans et turks relatifs a l'Extréme-Orient du VIIIe au XVIIIe siécles : traduits, revus et annotés. Volume 2
Description: Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2015. Facsimile Edition, Original Wrappers. Fine/No Dustjacket. 9781108080446 Stamped Damaged to verso title page. Light creasing to bottom right hand corner front cover. Otherwise fine. Gabriel Ferrand (1864__1935) travelled widely as a French diplomat and pursued scholarly passions as a polyglot orientalist. He served as consul to Madagascar and published several works about the island, noting the Arab influence that preceded the arrival of Europeans. A member of the Soci't_ Asiatique, and editor of its journal from 1920 until his death, Ferrand sought in particular to make Arabic geographical and nautical writings more accessible to fellow scholars and students. Forming part of that project, this work appeared in two volumes in 1913__14. It presents annotated French translations of mainly Arabic texts relating to the Far East. Brief biographical notes on the authors are given for the benefit of non-specialists. Volume 2 contains texts from the thirteenth century onwards, and includes a section of translated extracts from Chinese, Japanese, Tamil, Kawi and Malay texts. Size: Octavo. Text is in French.
