Translated from the original French edition of 1676, this work in two volumes bound in one is a complete and unabridged narrative of one of the most renowned traveler of the seventeenth century.

Tavernier's name, owing to its frequent mention in histories and in works on precious stones, has long been known. He traveled during a period when so much was done to bring home to the people of Europe information about countries which had previously been but little known. This encyclopedic volume presents an approximately literal translation of the portion of the Travels which refer to India, accompanying it by such identifications of localities with modern sites and elucidation of obscure points.
