Contemporary calf, borders ruled in gilt, flat spine with elaborate gilt decoration and red title label, r.e. Bookplate on front paste down. First edition of Avril's narrative of his two journeys through Central Asia aiming to discover new overland routes to China. Philippe Avril, Jesuit professor of philosophy and mathematics at Paris, was summoned by Father Ferdinand Verbiest in Peking to join the mission there. For eight years, from 1682 to 1690, Avril travelled overland reaching North and Northwest China but ultimately failing to reach Peking. This narrative covers both journeys; the first by caravan through Syria, Kurdistan, Armenia, Persia and across the Caspian to Astrakan where he had to turn back, and the second about his attempt to cross Siberia from Moscow to China, with his return to the West through Constantinople, Moldavia, Poland and Lithuania. Avril's narrative is based on earlier Jeusit reports but also on new information given to him by caravan travellers and rulers he met en route, in particular the king of Syria. Cordier BS 2088.

First English editions of Tavernier's celebrated work "Six Voyages" and the Supplement, originally published in 1676-77 and 1679 respectively. John Baptiste Tavernier (1605-89) was a French gem merchant who spent 30 years travelling in the East. His famous work covers his travels to Turkey, Persia, India and the East Indies. Including information about Caucasus, Armenia, Constantinople, Baghdad, Ispahan, Aleppo, Agra, Goa, Surat, Bhutan, Ceylon, Batavia, South East Asia, etc. The plates depict city views of Yerevan, Baghdad, Candahar, Island of Ormus, two of Arabic script and several of Oriental coins and gems, reflecting the author's commercial interest. One chapter is devoted to the Ottoman court's Seraglio (Harem).The Voyages "are rich in materials on routes, traveling conditions, trading practices, the mines of Golcondia [in India], and the Dutch and English activities in the East" (Lach). The supplement contains descriptions of Japan and Tonkin (today north Vietnam); French negotiations in Persia and India which resulted in the foundation of the French East India company; commerce in the East Indies; and Tavernier's highly critical remarks on how the Dutch manage their affairs in Asia. The eight plates are devoted to Tonkin including ceremonial processions, pagodas, official costumes and a theatre scene. Small tear to inner fold of map, occasionally some minor marginal staining, one leaf with small burn hole, but overall a very handsome and bright copy. Howgego T14.
