The death of the child Valerio Marcello by Margaret L King ( )
9 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Margaret King shows what the death of a little boy named Valerio Marcello over five hundred years ago can tell us about his time. This child, scion of a family of power and privilege at Venice's time of greatness, left his father in a state of despair so profound and so public that it occasioned an outpouring of consoling letters, orations, treatises, and poems. In these documents, we find a firsthand account, richly colored by humanist conventions and expectations, of the life of the fifteenth-century boy, the passionate devotion of his father, the feelings of his brothers and sisters, the str

Odoric of Pordenone by Odorico ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in Latin and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Odoric of Pordenone's writings describe his mission to India, South East Asia and China covering the period ca. 1320-1330. They provide excellent detail of the culture and customs of the places he visited. He set out from Venice and travelled via Constantinople, Trebizond, Erzerum and Tabriz to Sultanieh. From here he proceeded to Hormuz on the Persian Gulf, passing through Kazan, Yazd, Persepolis, Shiraz and Baghdad. At Hormuz he embarked for India, landing at Tana (Thane), near Bombay. Here he describes how he disinterred the bones of the four martyred friars, who had been the companions of Jordanus of Severac. He carried their remains all the way to Zayton in China for reburial. After Bombay, he visited Malabar, Pandarani, Cranganore, Quilon, Ceylon and the shrine of St Thomas, near Madras. From India he sailed to Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Champa in Indochina, before reaching Canton (Guangzhou). Then Odoric travelled overland to the Chinese province of Fujian, stopping at Zayton (Amoy), before heading inland to Foochow and then across the mountains into Zhejiang to visit the splendours of the royal residence of Cansay (Hangzhou). Passing northwards Odoric headed to Nanking and crossed the Yangtze River before completing his journey to Cambalec (Peking) along the Grand Canal of China. He stayed 3 years at the Court of the Great Khan, ca. 1324-1327. The return voyage is less clearly described. Odoric made his way overland across Asia passing through Tibet and Persia. Upon reaching Padua in May 1330 the story of his travels was taken down in Latin by Friar William of Solagna. There are many versions of Odoric's narrative, both in original manuscript in Latin, French and Italian, and in printed editions dating from 1513 onwards. Some of Odoric's eyewitness reports also found their way into the Mandeville texts
Marco Polo by Audrey Daly ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in Latin and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Marco Polo travelled to the Orient with his father and uncle, setting off from Venice in 1271 and arriving in Peking in 1274. He spent the next 17 years in various parts of the Mongol empire under the protection of Kublai Khan and carried out many diplomatic assignments for him. Marco's integration into a society perceived as hostile in other contemporary reports provides a unique aspect to his accounts of the Mongol system and the court of the Great Khan. His final duty for Kublai Khan was to escort the Mongol princess Cocacin to her betrothed, the Ilkhan Arghun. The party departed from the southern port city of Quanzhou in 1291, sailing to Sumatra, and then Persia, via Ceylon and India, where they made visits to Mylapore, Madurai and Allepey. They reached the Ilkhanate after Arghun's death and Cocacin was left with Gaykhatu, the new Ilkhan. The Polos returned to Venice via Trebizond. Marco was captured during a conflict between Venice and Genoa and the first account of his travels was written while in prison, 1298-1299. His writings were soon translated into many different languages and brought the European world considerable knowledge of China's culture, the Silk Road trade routes and all aspects of the Mongol Empire. The original of 'Il milione', known in English as 'The Travels of Marco Polo' was lost. Between 1310 and 1320 Marco wrote a new version in Italian, but again the original was lost. A Latin translation by a Franciscan friar, Francesco Pipino, survived and was translated back into Italian. There are many different and often conflicting versions of the various translations and editions
