Present work narrates with exhaustive notes, the travels of John Huyghen Van Linschoten to East Indies and is based on the English translation (1598) of the first part of his Dutch work Itinerario (1592), which contained the Itinerary proper. Itinerario when originally published in Dutch was considered a revelation. After its publication, everyone learned that the colonial empire of Portuguese was rotten, and that an energetic rival would have every chance of supplanting them. Its importance met with speedy and extensive recognition. English, German and Latin translations were quickly brought out. For long the book was constantly quoted as authority; and as picture of Portuguese India at the end of the sixteenth century, still retains interest. Printed Pages: 728.
