A great deal of European travel writing details the history of Europe's relationship to the Orient, a place highly exoticized by western observers. The longstanding desire to infiltrate the East and conquer the peoples of Asia is exemplified by João de Barros' 1562 account L'Asia, de'fatti de'Portoghesi nello scoprimento, & conquista de'mari & terre di Oriente, and William Bernard's nineteenth-century Narrative of the Voyages and Services of the Nemesis, from 1840 to 1843; and of the Combined Naval and Military Operations in China. Scholar Edward Said brought attention to the phenomenon of 'Orientalism' with his groundbreaking study of the subject in the 1970s. Following in the wake of Said's research, Mary Campbell observes that pre-modern descriptions of Asia's marvels focus upon all that was not characteristic of Europe, but what she believes was characteristic of European fantasies of the East. Eventually, as Asia became an important site of merchant activity, the need arose for more serious geographical and cultural information. Marco Polo's detailed descriptions of his experiences are among the best known of these early attempts to introduce the East to the West. In our collection, Marco Polo's account may be found in Giovanni Battista Ramusio's Secondo volume delle navigationi et viaggi, a sixteenth-century collection of famous voyages. (Since Egypt was considered a part of the Middle East, and was explored long before the rest of Africa, descriptions of Egypt will be found alongside descriptions of The Levant in the following list, rather than under the heading of Africa).
