Jean-Baptiste Tavernier (1605-1689) travelled through every European country, and then he explored Turkey, Persia, India and Asia Minor. On his return from his sixth trip, he wrote his “Relations”.

The interesting illustration consists of 1 fine frontispiece, 1 portrait of the author engraved by Causé, 44 plates of which 37 are folded and 2 large folding maps of Tonkin and Japan Islands.

A handsome copy preserved in its beautiful 18th century apple green morocco, with the spines finely decorated with grotesques.

Seventeenth century editions of Tavernier’s travels bound in fine old morocco are very rare.
