Embassy to Tamerlane - Clavijo
'Clavijo was so keen and intelligent an observer and so lively a retailer of travel gossip that this is a very welcome addition to the series.' New Statesman
Covering thousands of miles, Clavijo's epic journey began and ended in Cadiz taking in Rhodes, Constantinople, the Black Sea, and Central Asia.
Guy Le Strange's extensive introduction gives excellent historical and political background for the account and the material is supplemented with seven maps and plans.
