A pleasure, along with volume 2, as much for the Yule-Cordier notes as for 'The Book' itself. I'm not a Marco expert, never mind the Yūan Dynasty, never mind the thirteenth century, but by most accounts this is the standard English text these days, as it has been for more than a century, and it's the version Ezra Pound read, in the 1903 edition, which is good enough for me. Includes famously the earliest known account of Japan, or 'Chipangu', in a European language.

Marco Polo was supposedly born in Venetian Republic, in what is now Venice, Italy. There are also stories and various documents which point to his ancestry originating in Korčula, Croatia.
He was a well known trader and an explorer. He recorded his adventures in a book published as "The Travels of Marco Polo". The original copies of his works are lost.
