About This Item

Randolph's famous record of his travels in the Peloponnese in the 1670's and 80's, including the Aegean Islands, Crete and Rhodes. His account is unusual and interesting because, unlike most travelers of the time, he is interested in the contemporary life and times of people in Greece, and not solely in antiquities. His descriptions are precise, and he generally does not philosophise.

This book belonged to (among others) Washington Sewallis Shirley, 9th Earl Ferrers, has his bookplate, and in a period hand (putatively his) is written "The Lord ferrers (sic) his book."

Page ends soiled with age, and somewhat wavy, but in very clear and readable condition.
