    Approximately 150 manuscript copies in various languages are known to exist,Marco Polo Season 2and before availability of the printing press discrepancies were inevitably introduced during copying and translation.Rustichello wrote Devisement du Monde in Langues d'Oil, a lingua franca of crusaders and western merchants in the Orient.The idea probably was to create a handbook for merchants, essentially a text on weights, measures and distances.An authoritative version of Marco Polo's book does not and cannot exist, for the early manuscripts differ significantly.The popular translation published by Penguin Books in 1958 by R.E. Latham works several texts together to make a readable whole.Polo related his memoirs orally to Rustichello da Pisa while both were prisoners of the Genova Republic.The published editions of his book either rely on single manuscripts, blend multiple versions together,Marco Polo Season 2 DVDor add notes to clarify, for example in the English translation by Henry Yule.
