9789676530394: Spices: The Story of Indonesia's Spice Trade (Images of Asia)

Spices is the fascinating story of the lucrative trade in four main spices--cloves, nutmeg, pepper, and cinnamon--indigenous to only 15 of the 13,000 islands forming the Indonesian archipelago. The spices brought a lucrative trade to the Indies which lasted over 2,000 years, and changed the course of history as nations battled for control of these precious commodities for use as preservatives, flavorings, fumigants, medicines, and perfumes. This beautifully illustrated book contains numerous water-colors, engravings, and photographs.
