Notes: Originally published: London : Printed by Samuel Broun and John de l'Ecluse ., 1663; London, The Argonaut Press, 1935. Summary: This work has a double object in view. In the first place it purports to give a critical review of one of the best sources for the history of 17th-century Japan and Siam, to wit, the descriptions of those countries compiled by Franois Caron and Justus Schouten in 1636, and translated into English by Captain Roger Manley 27 years later. The secondary aim of this work is to help readers to obtain some notion of the predominant part played at the time by the Dutch East India Company in the Far East, as exemplified in the career of one of its most remarkable servants, Franois Caron. For this edition the old English edition of 1663 has been used with scrupulous fidelity, and carefully annotated. 1 Kg. Bookseller Inventory # 171329
