Covering the transpacific period – in between Magellan's opening of the transpacific route to the Far East and the eventual dominance of the region by the British and the Dutch – this collection provides a broad perspective on how Western Europe made sense of a complex, multi-faceted, and by and large Sino-centered East and Southeast Asia.
