About this Item

302 pages, colour illustrated. Orange-cloth cover, no damage. Illustrated slip-case, very slight edge-wear. Pages clean straight & unmarked. Tight binding. "History loves a paradox, and there can be none greater than a taste for spices being responsible for the exploration of our planet. Sovereigns pledged their prestige, and navigators risked their lives, not in the quest for gold or the thirst for power but to redirect the distribution of a few inessential and today almost irrelevant vegetable products. It is not in the end a pretty story. Nor is it one richly endowed with archaeological or artefactual remains. Indeed one could retrace the entire spice route without ever consciously encountering any solid evidence of its existence." 136 Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000692
