Ibn Battuta

by Edoardo Albert

Part of the A Concise Life Series

Ibn Battuta Synopsis

Ibn Battuta was no ordinary traveller. Between 1325 CE when he set off and 1354 CE when he finally returned home to stay, he had visited about 40 modern countries and travelled roughly 75,000 miles, going on foot, camel, horse, wagon, boat and even sled. His travels took him to nearly every part of the Muslim world at the time, from Morocco to Mecca, through Persia and Iraq, down the west coast of Africa, into Russia, over to India and even across to China. Ibn Battuta's journey gives us a fascinating window into what the world was like in the fourteenth century. With illustrations, photographs, and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Ibn Battuta is vividly brought alive.

Ibn Battuta Press Reviews

Edoardo Albert has taken what may be the greatest journey ever made by one human - Ibn Battuta - compressed it elegantly, and still managed to communicate the time-transcending thrill of travel. In this odyssey-in-miniature, we can feel the itch of those fourteenth-century feet. Tim Mackintosh-Smith
