LONDON: Printed for R. Allot. 1627 [published date: 1627]. Rare Third edition. Small Folio. 11.5" x 7.75" inches (LxB). Pp. 309 pages, engraved title page after Francis Delaram, double-page folding map + 47 copper engraved illustrations in text, of which 3 are full page, lacking the often missing folding plate, no indication it was ever bound in. Fine original 19th c. 3/4 polished calf leather binding, over marbled boards, gilt decorated spine with maroon gilt lettered morocco labels. Sandys' wonderfully illustrated classic was first published in 1615, followed by the second edition of 1621, and here again, a year after his famous translation of Ovid was published Third Edition with a total of 49 (of 50) engravings including the large folding map of Eastern Mediterranean to Caspian Sea, Arabia, Black Sea, costumes, plans, views. George Sandys (1578-1644) left England in 1610 on an extended foreign tour. This account of his travels, first published in 1615, at once became popular and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. Sandys was also interested in colonial promotion and was one of the undertakers of the third charter of the Virginia company in 1611'. Also described in the text are Hist. of the Turkes, Mahometans, Voyage up the Nile, Pyramids, The Mummies, Cyprus, Crete, Malta, Sicily, the Aeolian Islands, Rome, Venice, Naples, Syracuse, Massena. There is good description of the Jews in the Holy Land, the peoples of Egypt, Turkey, Jerusalem, their customs, religion, ceremonies, etc. New S. T. C. 21726: These celebrated travels were 'written in a pleasant style, are distinguished by erudition, sagacity and a love of truth'. An important work. STC 21729. Izaak Walton noted in his Compleat Angler Sandys's allusion to the pigeon-carrier services between Aleppo and Babylon. Milton's "Ode on the Passion" was inspired by the fervent verse which Sandys wrote after a visit to the Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem. An extract from his book appeared in Purchas's Pilgrimes, 1625, part II, and his accounts of both Africa and the Holy Land figure in John Harris's Navigantium et Itinerantium Bibliotheca, 1705.
