The Periplus furnishes a most interesting part of early commercial history. Its study enables us to have a glimpse of the first record of organized trading with the nations of the East, in vessels built and commanded by subjects of the Western world. The book was originally written in the form of notes, which has been maintained in the present translations and are of great interest giving as they do in exhaustive survey of the international trade between the great empires of Rome, Parthia, India and China together with a collection of facts touching the early trade of a number of other countries of much interest. The International trade of the modern world is everyday coming more and more under exact laws of demand and supply and in this perspective study of Periplus is of added importance

3 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an account of the Portuguese mission which landed at Massawa on the west coast of the Red Sea in April 1520 and re-embarked 6 years later. It was the first European embassy known to have reached the Ethiopian court and returned safely from it. It was a small group of fourteen, among whom was the chronicler Alvares, who wrote the most detailed early account of the country, valuable for Ethiopian history and the history of the expansion of Europe. Alvares's account was translated into English for the Hakluyt Society by Lord Stanley in 1881. This revision makes use of sources since discovered, corrects certain errors, and modifies the style of the early version. There is an introduction, detailed annotation and a number of appendices. This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volumes first published in 1961."--Provided by publisher
