The travels of the Jesuits in Ethiopia: containing I. The geographical description of all kingdoms, and provinces of that Empire; the natural and political history; the manners, customs, and religion of those people, &c. II. Travels in Arabia Felix, wherein many things of that country, not mention'd in other books of this nature, are treated of, as a particular description of Aden, Moca, and several other places. III. An account of the kingdoms of Cambate, Gingiro, Alaba, and Dancali beyond Ethiopia in Africk, never travelled into by any but the Jesuits, and consequently wholly unknown to us. Illustrated with an exact map of the country, delineated by those fathers, as is the draught of the true springs and course of the Nile, within Ethiopia, besides other useful cuts. The whole collected, and historically digested by F. Balthazar Tellez, of the society of Jesus; and now first translated into English.
