Criticism of Travel
|Notes||English translation of an Oration by Hermann Kirchner and pronounced at Marberg by his student Henry de Stangi (or Henrich von Stange as Stagl spells it). Occurs at sigs. Cc8r-Ee3r of 'Coryats Crudities'. The Latin original is described elsewhere in this database under the title 'De Germaniae Perlustratione Omnibus Aliis Peregrinationibus anteferenda'.|
'Coryats Crudities' (1611) appeared in only one edition. In 1611 a pirated version of its prefatory verses titled 'The Odcombian Banquet' appeared with a scurrilous preface attacking Coryat. ODNB states John Taylor may have been responsible.
