about

The amazing Englebert Kaempfer -- German polyglot, physician, botanist, and historian -- traveled throughout Asia from 1683 to 1692 and held several important posts, notably physician to the Dutch East India Company's trading station at Nagasaki, Japan. Kaempfer's descriptions of the various countries he visited or resided in have been praised for their great detail and accuracy. This journal of his trip to Thailand in 1690 includes maps and illustrations as well as biographies of both author and translator.
