Minor wear to cover, otherwise in very good used condition, with clean unmarked and uncreased pages, spine intact, bindings firm. Condition: Used: Good. Gay ; Howgego A Second German edition in the present form, extensively illustrated, of "the first detailed description of Ethiopia" [Abyssinia] Howgego , based largely on his voyages in the years , which included a six-year stay in Ethiopia.
He gives us the earliest detailed account of Ethiopia to be based in part on first-hand knowledge and therefore provides our most important primary source for the history, culture and topography of Ethiopia before it was invaded by Islamic troops under Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi of Somalia in Ethiopia at this time had large Christian and Islamic communities and the woodcut illustrations show court scenes of Ottoman and Christian rulers, siege and battle scenes and ships.
The second work is a German translation of Historiae adversus Paganos, a history of the world written by Paulus Orosius ca. Orosius had travelled along the entire Mediterranean coast of Africa, visiting Alexandria in Egypt, so his accounts of those regions carry special authority.

The third work is largely a translation of the text of Abraham Ortelius's world atlas, Theatrum orbis terrarum, first published in Latin in and expanded over the years. The three works were clearly intended for publication together, but each has its own title-page. With an early owner's name cut out of the title-page, another struck through and replaced by a gift inscription, and a woodcut armorial bookplate on the pastedown. With an excision in the title-page to remove an owner's name the margins of the title-page somewhat tattered, an occasional browned sheet and some small worm holes and marginal waterstains, but further in good condition.
An essential source for 16th-century Ethiopia.

Such individuals who served as auxiliaries would typically be granted their citizenship at the completion of their service. For some, as arguably is the case of the Lukan author, Roman dominion need not necessarily present a direct challenge to those wishing to follow Christ.

Title of work:. Geographical and historical thought, long rooted to Roman ideologies, had to adopt the new perspectives of late antiquity.
In the light of expanding Christianity and the evolution of successor kingdoms in the West, new historical discourses emerged which were seminal in the development of medieval historiography. Taking their lead from Orosius in the early fifth century, Latin historians turned increasingly to geographical description, as well as historical narrative, to examine the world around them. This book explores the interdependence of geographical and historical modes of expression in four of the most important writers of the period: Orosius, Jordanes, Isidore of Seville and the Venerable Bede.
