Annotation

This volume presents critical editions of two previously unpublished missionary accounts of Ayutthaya and the East Indies scene after the "National" Revolution of 1688 in Thailand: <i>Relation de Voyage aux Indes</i>, 1690-99, by Guy Tachard, a French Jesuit; and <i>Relatione Distinta delli Regni di Siam, China, Tunchino e Cocincina</i> (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.
