• The Travels of Marco Polo (unabridged)

New This Month

Peter Wickham gives us one of the most important travelogues in existence, The Travels of Marco Polo. Said to have inspired the voyages of Magellan and Columbus, The Travels is the classic account of Marco Polo’s journey to China from Venice, and his discoveries as an emissary to the great Kublai Khan. Nicholas Boulton explores the darker side of human experience in Dostoyevsky’s Notes from Underground and The Gambler, while Rupert Degas reveals the life of a young zookeeper in Gerald Durrell’s Beasts in My Belfry. We also have A Concise History of the United States of America, examining one of the world’s most powerful nations, read by Robert G. Slade.
