Second edition, first edition was published anonymously in 1679 by the same publisher. Later editions appeared in 1726 and 1744. Naud ( 1631-1683), was a member of the suite of the Marquis de Noitel, French ambassador to the Porte, during his voyage in the Eastern Mediterranean in 1673-4. Naud joined the ambassador’s suite only for the journey to Palestine and Syria. According to Sommervogel Naud left Paris in 1665 to enlist in the Levant Missions. Tobler ascribes to Naud an earlier work, Le Voyage de Galilee, Paris, 1670, which describes a journey Naud carried out with the French Consul at Sidon, Bonnecorse, in 1665. Naud returned to Paris in 1682. In this work Naud gives a detailed description of his encounters in Palestine, and Sidon in South Lebanon.
