In 1609 he set sail for the East and he spent the next year travelling in Turkey, Egypt and Palestine and later studied antiquities in Rome. His observations first appeared in English in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. He has been called the first 'classical tourist' of England. Sandys also was interested in colonial promotion, and was one of the undertakers named in the third charter of the Virginia Company in 1611, and later treasurer and a member of the Council. This book also became popular in the Netherlands and was several times republished. - A fine clean copy.Tiele 959; Cat.

It is conceivable that Jan Somer never travelled at all, but is one of the many plagiarists of his time. Somer was widely read, however, and had the reputation of being a famous traveller who wrote excellent accounts of his extensive journeys (Koster, To Hellen's noble land, 13).
