Third edition. Covers the voyage from Brest to Siam, and the ports of stop in between. The majority of the work is on Siam, but an interesting portion also on Batavia and other areas. The meeting with the King of Siam, visits to Cochichine and to Tunquin, observations on the area flora & fauna, letter to Verbiest, the people and their costume, customs and much more.
A very fascinating early look at Siam from western eyes, with a careful description of the Siamese King, his character and evaluation of him. The author was together with Chevalier de Chaumont sent by Louis XVI in a great Embassy to Siam in 1685. Choisy's official role was to be that of religious instructor to the King of Narai of Siam.
This interesting account offers an early insight to the daily life in Siam.
The cover with restored corner pieces, the title page with re-inforcement of paper.

Reference: Cordier 948.
