Explains that 'it was not till 1818 that the example was first set, by Marsden, of applying serious and scientific treatment to the mass of curious and veracious facts which Marco Polo had collected during twenty-seven years of his active life, and which for a long time had been looked upon as so much amusing fiction' (422).
