First French edition, with the plates from the first Dutch original of 1676. Contains, amongst many other things, a full account of the revolt of Stenka Radzin, chief of the Cosacks, against the Czar of Russia. The author also has an eye for the sensational, claiming for example, that he has seen a human race with tails in Formosa - and including plates of barbaric torture (a female slave/ wife being flayed to death etc.) and mass executions in Siam and Persia. The very fine plates, some of which are by Kip after the author's own sketches, also include highly detailed views of cities such as Ispahan, Persepolis, Muschati, Seras, Gammeron, Astracan etc. "However, Struys kept no diary, so that by the time his narrative was finally published in 1676, his fanciful imagination had somewhat distorted the reality behind his journey. At sea he experienced typhoons, shipwrecks, hunger and captivity, and he was several times sold as a slave, a misfortune always guaranteed to delight a seventeenth-century audience. He returned from one of his journeys with a cross carved from the wood of Noah's ark, given to him by a hermit on Mt Ararat." (Howgego).
