|Voyages d'Ibn Batoutah|
|texte arabe, accompagné d'une traduction|
|The Voyages of Ibn Battuta is the account of the traveler’s 30 year journey, starting in 1325. Ordered by the Sultan of Morocco to write down the account of his travels, Ibn Battuta recounted everything to the scribe, Ibn Juzayy. Ibn Juzayy compiled and edited the tales into a manuscript which was given the title, Gift to Those Who Contemplate the Wonders of Cities and the Marvels of Travelling. Beginning in Mecca, Ibn Battuta traveled to Yemen and into East Africa. He also visited what is present day Turkey and to various parts of India before traveling as far east as China. In Africa, he crossed the Sahara to travel to many of the African kingdoms in sub-Saharan Africa. This particular version of the book was compiled using five manuscripts (including Ibn Juzayy’s original manuscript) held in the National Library in France. In order to have the most reliable version, a direct translation was made of the work into French with extensive notes. It is the most widely used version of the manuscript by scholars of Ibn Battuta.|
