This Folio Society edition of the travels of the famous Venetian merchant and explorer, written down from the original tales by Marco Polo by Rustichello da Pisa, has been rebound in bottle green goatskin with red leather inlays of dragons dancing across the cover.

Handsewn silk headbands complete the binding, which is presented in a drop-backed book box
