Unusual and sought after work, in English, about our country and its people. One of the most important foreign bibliographical pieces about Portugal. Profusely illustrated with magnificent black photographs by Hugh Allen and color illustrations by Mrs. S. Roope Dockery.
“It may that the present volume is condensed unduly in proportion to the extent of the help that has been rendered. Throughout the country the assistance of that most admirable body, the Propaganda of Portugal, has been of such value and was so freely tendered that my debt of gratitude is indeed a weighty one to those whose motto `pro patria omnia` represents no mere figure of speech. To Messrs. L. de Mendonça and Costa, C. George, Lorjó Tavares, Manoel Roldan, and AC Bossa, I have in particular to return thanks, since it was their presence on many exploration which rendered lucid that otherwise must have remained dubious. ..) ”- taken from Preface.

VERY RARE first Portuguese edition, and one of the first editions of the famous Ibn Batuta voyages, also known as Ben-Batuta (1304-1368 / 69), which describe about 40 years of voyages made by the Arab explorer. A native of Tangier, he decided during a pilgrimage to Mecca to extend his trip across the Islamic world, becoming one of the most amazing Arab travelers, estimated to have traveled about 120,000 km. Ibn Batuta passed through Egypt, Syria, provinces of the Greek Empire, Tartaria, Persia, India and China, was in Spain in Andalusia from where he returned to Africa, and finally in 1354, passed to Fez where he spent the rest of his life dictating. his travel memories to royal secretary Ibn Juzayyat Fez. For a long time only small extracts of Ibn Batuta`s work were known from a manuscript preserved in the Gotha library. In 1829 Samuel Lee published a more complete translation of the text from three existing abstracts in Cambridge, and it was not until 1853 that a complete edition was published from several manuscripts found during the French occupation of Algeria. This French edition was published only in 1853 and the translation and notes by Charles Defrémery and Beniamino Sanguinetti. According to the Portuguese translator José de Santo Antonio Moura, the manuscript he used for his translation was purchased in 1797 in Fez. This manuscript of his "was copied from another written by Mohammed, Ben Mohammed, Ben Ahamad, Ben Jazi, Alcalbi, Granatense, contemporary and friend of Ibn Batuta, the author of which is his copyist." bib: Innocent, 4, 241; Encyclopedia of Exploration, p. 97 (B47)
