Book Description

Originally published 1972.

The Ship of Sulaiman is an account of a Persian embassy which went to Siam in the latter part of the seventeenth century. The work is a translation of a manuscript in the British Museum, and is an account put together by a scrfibe who accompanied the mission to Siam. The principal focus is on the community of resident Iranians and the important role, which, prior to the embassy’s arrival, the Iranians had been playing in the trade and political affairs of Siam.
