Size : 9.4 x 12.4 inches. / 24.0 x 31.5 cm.

Description :One of the earliest obtainable town-plan of the Kremlin fortress and Moscow from the German edition of the first authentic account of Russia written by a western traveler: "Rerum Moscoviticarum Comentarii" ('Description of Moscow and Muscovy'), by Sigismund von Herberstein's.
The book remains a significant source for understanding the geography, politics, religion and social conditions of sixteenth century Russia.
The first edition of Herberstein's book, written in humanistic Latin, was printed in Vienna in 1549. A second edition appeared two years later, followed by a third edition in 1556.
. In 1557 the author's own German version was published.
Sigismund von Herberstein made two visits to Russia. In 1517-1518 he travelled as a diplomatic envoy of the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian I. He returned in 1526-1527 as an ambassador of Ferdinand I, King of Bohemia and Hungary.
His combined visits amounted to a period of sixteen months during which he was able to see "... the land and city of Moscow and much of their manners and customs... Thus I can bear witness not merely from hearsay but as one who has seen partly for himself..." (Translation by J B C Grundy: 1969, p15). ¤
Condition : Wood block print with letter press. Some marginal discolouration.
