Abstract

Peter Mundy (c. 1596-1667) claimed to have travelled 100,833⅝ miles in his lifetime. It was on a journey from Constantinople (Istanbul) to London in 1620 that he began to keep a record of his travels. He left the Turkish city on May 6th in the train of the retiring ambassador, Paul Pindar. This map shows, in red, the route travelled to Spalato (Split, Croatia) where Mundy, Pindar and his party boarded a boat to Venice. They arrived in London on September 18th. Over the next 40 or so years, Mundy kept a record of his voyages to India, Japan, China, Holland, Russia, and Poland. The original manuscript, which contains his life’s travels in 36 ‘Relations’ is held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. This Hakluyt version is the first time it was published in full.
