Herrn Johann Baptisten Taverniers / Freiherns von Aubonne / Vierzig = Jährige Reise = Beschreibung
Contemporary blind stamped full vellum over wooden covers, remains of clasps, some pages browned, a few pages with some water stain, but in general a good copy. Tavernier was a jeweler who traveled widely in Asia. During his travels he was able to acquire and to see the most important gemstones of his time. In this work he describes his travels as well as the gemstones he acquired. Gemstones treated and illustrated include diamonds, rubies, topaz, pearls, as well as descriptions of corals, musk and bezoar. The plates variously show gemstones, animals and the inhabitants of the countries visited.
