Cox I, p.275 (on the English ed.): "Tavernier (...), will always continue among the most valuable travellers in the East.

His work is especially valuable at the time for its information on trade and trade routes, diamonds and mines. (...) modern scholars agree that in the main he was accurate in his statements of facts". - Tiele, 1080; Cat.
