The Travels


Author: Marco Polo
Publisher: Penguin UK
ISBN: 0141198788
Category: Travel
Page: 380
View: 4092
A sparkling new translation of one of the greatest travel books ever written: Marco Polo's seminal account of his journeys in the east, in a collectible clothbound edition. Marco Polo was the most famous traveller of his time. His voyages began in 1271 with a visit to China, after which he served the Kublai Khan on numerous diplomatic missions. On his return to the West he was made a prisoner of war and met Rustichello of Pisa, with whom he collaborated on this book. His account of his travels offers a fascinating glimpse of what he encountered abroad: unfamiliar religions, customs and societies; the spices and silks of the East; the precious gems, exotic vegetation and wild beasts of faraway lands. Evoking a remote and long-vanished world with colour and immediacy, Marco's book revolutionized western ideas about the then unknown East and is still one of the greatest travel accounts of all time. For this edition - the first completely new English translation of the Travels in over fifty years - Nigel Cliff has gone back to the original manuscript sources to produce a fresh, authoritative new version. The volume also contains invaluable editorial materials, including an introduction describing the world as it stood on the eve of Polo's departure, and examining the fantastical notions the West had developed of the East. Marco Polo was born in 1254, joining his father on a journey to China in 1271. He spent the next twenty years travelling in the service of Kublai Khan. There is evidence that Marco travelled extensively in the Mongol Empire and it is fairly certain he visited India. He wrote his famous Travels whilst a prisoner in Genoa. Nigel Cliff was previously a theatre and film critic for The Times and a regular writer for The Economist, among other publications, and now writes historical nonfiction books. His first book, The Shakespeare Riots, was published in 2007 and shortlisted for the Washington-based National Award for Arts Writing. His second book, The Last Crusade: Vasco da Gama and the Birth of the Modern World appeared in 2011 and was shortlisted for the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize.

Mauritius

Its Creole Language - The Ultimate Creole Phrase Book and Dictionary
Author: Jacques K. Lee
Publisher: Green Print
ISBN: 9781854250988
Category: Foreign Language Study
Page: 149
View: 5675
The book meets the general needs of tourists and business travellers with key paragraphs for every possible situation. All you need to know about Mauritian Creole in a nutshell. What is Mauritian Creole? A pidgin French which has evolved in Mauritius since the beginning of French rule nearly 300 years ago. Today it is the lingua franca of the country. It has no grammatical or other rules, no verbs to conjugate and no orthography. Non?Mauritians will probably find it the easiest foreign language to learn. The book has been written with these very people in mind and incorporates an English?Creole dictionary. The result is the most comprehensive book available for anyone wishing to learn Mauritian Creole. In this book the first attempt has been made to further simplify the language and make it even easier to learn and speak. Apostrophes and cedillas have been banished, so have unnecessary silent letters; accents have been reduced to just two, and used sparingly. Thus famille is spelt fami, Paques / Pac, cadeau /cado, Francois/ Fransoi and so on. The book gives the origins of many words, explains typical Creole expressions and idioms.It even provides a system of grading to denote the strength of swear words!Unusually for a language book, it also includes a comprehensive guide to Mauritian gastronomy with descriptions of most Creole dishes, as these have contributed the largest number of new words in use today, as can be seen in the chapter on the latest additions to Creole. The book is in two sections. Part One is for tourists who just want a phrase book. Part Two is for those who are interested in Mauritian Creole as a language and includes its history, tracing its origin, and evolution .

Garden of Eden in the Indian Ocean
Author: Sarah Carpin
Publisher: Odyssey Publications

Category: Travel
Page: 252
View: 4517
Pirate treasure is believed to be hidden somewhere on one of the small islands of Seychelles, which were used for many years as secret hideaways. Modern-day treasure-seekers are lured to the Indian Ocean archipelago by the promise of unspoiled golden beaches and the search for that elusive tropical paradise. For scenic splendor, isolated coral reef beaches, lush vegetation and a gentle tropical climate, the Republic of Seychelles is almost too good to be true. In this informative guide, Sarah Carpin examines the rich natural history of the islands, the short but vibrant history which has shaped the country since people first arrived here just over two hundred years ago, and offers tips on how to discover these paradise islands. Special topics include an argument by a Victorian traveler, General Gordon, that the islands were the site of the Garden of Eden; the unique conservation needs of the far-flung atoll of Aldabra, 'the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean', and how gold fever may strike even today.
