Title-leaf repaired at inner margin and outer corner restored; final leaf likewise repaired at inner margin; text moderately darkened and occasional marginal foxing. Fine Facsimile Facsimile reprint of the Basel, 1567 edition of Herberstein's rare and early 16th-century Moscow travels from - which itself was the second edition in German of the original Latin RERUM MUSCOVITICARUM COMMENTARII (Vienna, 1549). Baron von Herberstein was Ambassador from Emperor Maximilian I to the Grand Prince Vasiley Ivanovic in 1517. It wasn't translated into English until 1851-1852, when it appeared as NOTES UPON RUSSIA, BEING A TRANSLATION FROM THE EARLIEST ACCOUNT OF THAT COUNTRY ... with Notes and Introduction by Richard Henry Major (London, Hakluyt Society, 1851). One salient feature of the Basel 1567 edition is the three striking double-page maps which enhance its interest.
