Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The "book" of travels: genre, ethnology, and pilgrimage, 1250-1700 contains acknowledgments, list of illustrations, a note on transliteration, notes on contributors and colour plates. The essays presented in this volume span the time period from c. 1250 to 1700. The 'books' produced by our narrators range from a set of itinerary maps to diplomatic reports in journal form, from the somewhat boastful adventures of rising civil servants to the somewhat apologetic memoir of an aging, long-term expatriate, and from the poetic to the pedestrian.

Keywords: diplomatic reports; itinerary maps; pilgrimage
