None of the manuscripts which have come down to us represent the original form of Marco Polo's narrative, but it is clear that certain texts are closer to the lost original than others. Aldo Ricci's translation of Benedetto's landmark Italian edition includes an invaluable index providing all the identifications made in the Geographic text and also later editions by Marsden (1818), Pauthier (1865), and Yule (1871).
