Historia Aethiopica (2-volume set)

Encyclopaedic account of seventeenth century Ethiopia from contemporary sources, includes later commentary and both appendices. Copiously illustrated.

Account of Ethiopia by the seventeenth century founder of the study of Ethiopia in Europe. Using every resource available to him, and by his mastery of twenty languages, Ludolf compiled an extensive account of the wildlife, political history, ecclesiastical history, and translations. He continued to expand the work throughout his life, adding a commentary several times as long as the original. This commentary, and two appendices which reprint and translate Ethiopic texts, are included in the Gorgias edition. Copiously illustrated.
