Book description

This volume presents critical editions of two previously unpublished missionary accounts of Ayutthaya and the East Indies scene after the 'National' Revolution of 1688 in Thailand: 'Relation de Voyage aux Indes', 1690-99, by Guy Tachard, a French Jesuit; and 'Relatione Distinta delli Regni di Siam, China, Tunchino e Cocincina' (ca. 1707), by Nicola Cima, an Italian Augustinian. These interesting, substantial texts tell us a lot both about the Europeans who were writing them, and about Southeast Asia in a period when information was in much shorter supply than prior to 1688.
