In this introduction, the author expresses his praise to God as he shares his account of his travel to Europe. A pilgrim and traveller, he compiled his experiences in a book containing the wonders and curiosities that he saw in different European countries. He hopes that ‘those who see this book may reap the whole advantage of it (without labour), I have abridged it, and as a mark by which I may be remembered, I have placed it in the library of the world’.

Keywords: Europe; travel; God; wonders; curiosities
