John Jourdain, an English traveller, journeyed to the East Indies between the years 1609 and 1617. He went to several places which had never been visited by any of his country­men. For instance, he was one of the first Englishmen to visit Seychelles in 1609 and gives accounts of the English trading voyages to the Red Sea and made a pioneering journey through Yemen – from Aden to Sana and thence to Mocha. While in India he travelled to Ahmedabad, Jodhpur, Ajmer, Gwalior, Ujjain, Burhanpur and Broach. Then follows a lenthy narrative of his journey on a ship called Darling to Ambonia and Ceram. The book contains three maps showing the routes he took. As always, these travelogues are full of adventure and vivid descriptions of local customs and rituals along with snatches of historical anecdotes.
This book is a reprint of the 1905 edition.
