    Superb 3D illustrations: vivid visuals that take you behind the scenes and provide insight into iconic buildings and monuments. California Marco Polo Spiral Guide is a compact travel guide for people who have little time to prepare for a trip, don't want to miss anything, like to be inspired by great ideas for exciting days out and love all things ultra-practical and easy to use. With this Marco Polo guide you'll arrive in the country and know immediately 'where to start'. To help you find your way around there's the detailed Road Atlas, a useful map of San Francisco in the cover, plus the pull-out map. The Background chapter includes interesting information about the world's largest volcanic island, about the country and its people, economy and politics, society and everyday life. Haw however argued that many of the "omissions" could be explained.

    Perfectly planned itineraries: take you for a walk through Santa Barbara or on a driving tour along the famous coastal highway where you can enjoy this sun-drenched state on your own private road trip. Includes practical tips on how to beat queues, get the best view and much more from the city with one of the largest and most famous skylines in the world — dominated by the iconic Empire State Building. Critical editions[ edit ] The first attempt to collate manuscripts and provide a critical edition was in a volume of collected travel narratives printed at Venice in Despite a few exaggerations and errors, Polo's accounts are relatively free of the descriptions of irrational marvels, and in many cases where present mostly given in the first part before he reached China, such as mentions of Christian miracleshe made a clear distinction that they are what he had heard rather than what he had seen. Legacy[ edit ] The Travels was a rare popular success in an era before printing.

    The bigger book, of course, had no decent sized map. Don't miss - each chapter highlights the absolute must-sees for each area and what to do at your leisure if time permits. None of them however reached China itself. I'm planning a trip and wanted a map of about the size and scale offered up here; there was nothing else in the bookshop to temp me and no other place in town likely to stock a map of California. Five chapters organised by region and city: each chapter provides restaurant recommendations, the best shopping streets and the hottest places to go for a night out. Don't miss: Each chapter highlights the absolute must-sees for each area and what to do at your leisure if time permits.

Version in Franco-Venetian[ edit ] The oldest surviving Polo manuscript is in Franco-Venetianwhich was a variety of Old French heavily flavoured with Venetian dialect, spread in Northern Italy in the 13th century [29] [30] ; [31] for Luigi Foscolo Benedetto, this "F" text is the basic original text, which he corrected by comparing it with the somewhat more detailed Italian of Ramusio, together with a Latin manuscript in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana.

The impact of Polo's book on cartography was delayed: the first map in which some names mentioned by Polo appear was in the Catalan Atlas of Charles Vwhich included thirty names in China and a number of other Asian toponyms.
