M.G. Tononi, Archipretre De Plaisance, Qui Prepare Une Histoire Et Une Edition Des Ceuvres De Gregoire X., Me Fait

Remarquer que les chroniqueurs ne placent le depart de Tedaldo pour la Terre-Sainte qu'apres celui de S. Louis pour

Tunis (2 juillet 1270), et que, d'apres un acte du Tresor des Chartes, Tedaldo etait encore a Paris le 28 decembre 1269. Il faudrait done probablement dater de 1271 le premier et le deuxieme sejour des Polo a Acre, et les placer tous deux entre le 9 mai, epoque de l'arrivee en Terre-Sainte d'Edouard d'Angleterre, - avec lequel, suivant l'Eracles, aborda Tedaldo - et le 18 novembre, date du depart du nouveau pape pour l'Occident." (Cf. Hist. litt. de la France, XXXV, Marco Polo.)

Introduction, p. 19 n.

I have here discussed Major Sykes' theory of Polo's itinerary in Persia; the question was raised again by Major Sykes in the Geographical Journal, October, 1905, pp. 462-465. I answered again, and I do not think it necessary to carry on farther this controversy. I recall that Major Sykes writes: "To conclude, I maintain that Marco Polo entered Persia near Tabriz, whence he travelled to Sultania, Kashan, Yezd, Kerman, and Hormuz. From that port, owing to the unseaworthiness of the vessels, the presence of pirates, the fact that the season was past, or for some other reason, he returned by a westerly route to Kerman, and thence crossed the Lut to Khorasan."

I replied in the Geographical Journal, Dec., 1905, pp. 686-687: "Baghdad, after its fall in 1258, did not cease immediately to be 'rather off the main caravan route.' I shall not refer Major Sykes to what I say in my editions of 'Odorico' and 'Polo' on the subject, but to the standard work of Heyd, Commerce du Levant, Vol.
