Trial: Western Travellers in the Islamic World (Brill)

Hi friends!

We currently have a trial for Western Travellers in the Islamic World (Brill), a new online database. This database maintains: “Accounts of travel are a popular and accessible source for research on historical relations between “East” and “West” and are attractive for specialists and non-specialists alike. In the pre-modern period a large number of such accounts were published all over Europe, and almost without exception these volumes are now scarce and priceless. Some were republished later in modern editions (like those in the Hakluyt series), but these are often out of print at present.”
