The Spanish traveller Badia travelled in the Levant for five years. On his return he arranged for his work to be published before setting off on a second journey on which he died at Aleppo. He was the first Christian to describe Mecca in some detail. The plates in the English edition are the same as in the French except that the large map of Cyprus is not included in the English.
