Travel with a medieval man of letters Jan. 31 2008
By Gavin O'Driscoll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you get this edition, and I believe it's the only edition currently available, read Friar Odoric's travels before the introduction. That way it'll make more sense, believe me. I adore first hand accounts of medieval travellers, and here's one to rival Marco Polo. The good Friar is also less prone to telling porky pies than M. Polo I reckon. Nevertheless, his travels needed little further embellishment. A real snapshot of a bygone and lost era travelling through some lands that are now much changed.
