Platter's travel account is of great theatre-historical importance in itself, and a valuable aid to the interpretation of commedia dell'arte-related images, of which the most prolific, and perhaps least researched, are to be found in German friendship albums. Platter's accounts of French and Spanish carnivals, hired players at Parisian festivities and the Avignon performances of Zani Bragetta's mountebank quack troupe contribute significantly to an understanding of professional acting troupes in the age of Shakespeare.
