Annotation
The travels of Friar Odoric by Odorico( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Setting off only twenty years after Marco Polo's historic trip to the East, Odoric was the only religious traveler to the East whose voyage was recorded, making his account one of unparalleled importance for scholars and historians. Interestingly, Odoric noted the religious and cultural customs of the places he visited, treating their practices with tolerance, respect, and curiosity. He frequently took pains to tell of spectacular things - mountains of salt, impenetrable deserts, mice as big as dogs, trees that produced bread, magic fish, sensational pearls, gigantic tortoises, men with faces of dogs, hens covered in wool, and women equipped with fangs - making this fantastic reading even for those with casual interest."
The river of golden sand. The narrative of a journey through China and eastern Tibet to Burmah by William John Gill( Book )

33 editions published between 1880 and 2014 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Gill (1843-1883) was an explorer and commissioned officer in the Royal Engineers. After inheriting a fortune from a distant relative in 1871, Gill decided to remain in the Army and use his inheritance to finance explorations of remote countries, satisfying his love of travel and gathering intelligence for the British government. He was awarded a gold medal by the Royal Geographical Society in 1879 for his scientific observations on his expeditions. This two volume work, first published in 1880, is Gill's account of his expedition from Chengdu, China through Sichuan, along the eastern edge of Tibet via Litang, to Bhamo in Burma, a region little explored by westerners before him. Gill describes in vivid detail the cultures, societies and settlements of the region, and their political and economic systems. Volume 2 recounts his travels across the plateau to the upper reaches of the Irrawaddy, partly retracing Marco Polo's route

Mongolia, the Tangut country, and the solitudes of northern Tibet, being a narrative of three years' travel in eastern high Asia by Nikolaĭ Mikhaĭlovich Przhevalʹskiĭ( Book )

Ser Marco Polo; notes and addenda to Sir Henry Yule's edition, containing the results of recent research and discovery by Henri Cordier( Book )

More detail and background information is lent to the reader in this work, providing a more thorough knowledge of Marco Polo's travels
The diary of William Hedges, Esq. (afterwards Sir William Hedges) during his agency in Bengal as well as on his voyage out and return overland (1681-1687) by William Hedges( Book )

Hobson-Jobson : the definitive glossary of British India by Henry Yule( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hobson-Jobson is a unique work of maverick scholarship. Compiled in 1886 by two India enthusiasts, it documents the words and phrases that entered English from Arabic, Persian, Indian, and Chinese sources - and vice versa. Described by Salman Rushdie as 'the legendary dictionary of British India' it shows how words of Indian origin were absorbed into the English language and records not only the vocabulary but the culture of the Raj. It encompasses aspects of the history, trade, peoples, and geography of Asia in entries that are at once authoritative and playful. Like the Oxford English Dictionary, Hobson-Jobson included illustrative quotations that were drawn from a wide range of travel texts, histories, memoirs, and novels, creating a canon of English writing about India. The definitions frequently slip into anecdote, reminiscence, and digression, and they offer intriguing insights into Victorian attitudes to India and its people and customs. With its delight in language, etymology, and puns, Hobson-Jobson has fascinated generations of writers from Rudyard Kipling to Tom Stoppard and Amitav Ghosh. This selected edition retains the range and idiosyncrasy of the original, and Kate Teltscher's introduction and notes provide fascinating information on the glossary's creation, and its significance for the English language
