The first part of the present work gives an account of the Jesuit Missions to the court of Jahangir. Part two and three contain the accounts of Benedict Goes, and of the Portuguese occupation of Pegu. All three parts are based almost exclusively on the Relations of Father Fernao Gurreiro, which constitutes a complete history the missionary undertakings of the Society of Jesus in the East Indies, China, Japan, and Africa, during the first nine years of the seventeenth century. The work was compiled from the annual letters and reports sent to Europe from the various missionary centres as Jesuit Fathers did not profess to write history. Printed Pages: 317.
