Pietro's Pilgrimage. A Journey to India and back at the beginning of the Seventeenth Century

London: James Barrie, 1953. Hardcover. xii, 320p., scattered period illustrations in b&w, the hardbound first edition in not quite collectable condition, but a good reading copy: spine panel is dimmed from handling with the black cloth of covers flecked and worn,, lacks the dust jacket, text pages are entirely clean and unmarked, and textblock and casing together are square and sound. A useful book just as it is.

In Europe, Pietro spent two years in unsanitary Roman Catholic prisons where he could hear the screams of people on the rack. He was very tempted to suicide.
