First edition was published anonymously in 1679. Naud (1631 – 1683) was a member of the suite of Marquis de Nointel, French ambassador to the Porte, during his voyage in the Eastern Mediterranean in 1673-4. He joined the ambassador’s suite only to Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon. According to Sommervogel, Naud left Paris in 1665 to enlist in the Levant Missions. Tobler ascribes to Naud an earlier work, Le Voyage de Galilée, Paris, 1670, which describes a journey Naud carried out with the French consul Bonnecorse at Sidon, in 1665. Naud returned to Paris in 1682. He also wrote “Ecclesiae romanae graecaeque vera effigies”, Paris, 1680, and “L’État présent de la religion mahometane”, Paris, 1684.
