Incunabula printed in Venice, by the printer and bookseller Giovanni Battista Sessa, 13th June 1496, which offers the first Italian edition of the famous voyage of Marco Polo.

The Biblioteca del Palacio Real de Madrid zealously guards this incunabula of enormous worth, originating from the library of the Count of Gondomar.

It has the great transcendence due to the fact it is the only known copy in Spain.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
