Glasgow : mapping the city by John Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maps can tell much about a place that traditional histories fail to communicate. This lavishly illustrated book features 80 maps which have been selected for the particular stories they reveal about different political, commercial and social aspects of Scotland's largest city. The maps featured provide fascinating insights into topics such as: the development of the Clyde and its shipbuilding industry, the villages which were gradually subsumed into the city, how the city was policed, what lies underneath the city streets, the growth of Glasgow during the Industrial Revolution, the development of transport, the city's green spaces, the health of Glasgow, Glasgow as a tourist destination, the city as a wartime target, and its regeneration in the 1980s as the host city of one of the UK's five National Garden Festivals. Together, they present a fascinating insight into how Glasgow has changed and developed over the last 500 years, and will appeal to all those with an interest in Glasgow and Scottish history, as well as those interested in urban history, architectural history, town planning and the history of maps

Odoric de Pordenone by Odorico( )

4 editions published in 2007 in Latin and held by 29 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 Marco Polo( )

4 editions published in 2007 in Latin and held by 29 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
