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 as far as 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.

The second part "Series regum sive principum" is mainly based on Georgian manuscripts. Henrich Brenner, Finnish-born philosopher and diplomat who accompanied the Swedish envoy Ludvig Fabricius to Persia in 1697. The aim of the embassy was to establish trade relations between Persia and Sweden. Three years later on Brenner's return journey he was imprisoned in Russia.Due to the war between Charles XII and Peter I the Czar suspected that Brenner's mission might have secret political purposes and therefore had Brenner arrested at Moscow. He was imprisoned for twenty-one years until the conclusion of the Peace of Nystad. During his journey and the long imprisonment in Russia he had opportunity to study the languages and cultures of Armenia, Dagestan, Georgia and Circassia. Brenner's extensive commentary of the "Epitome com. Moysis Armeni" indicates his broad knowledge of classical and oriental literature. At end a letter to Erik Benzelius, Archbishop of Upsala at the time. Scarce. Zenker, BO ii, 2289. Svenskt Biografiskt Lexicon, 6.
