The Portuguese were the first European nation to establish a trading post in the Malay Archipelago, when they captured Malacca in 1511. This set of documents, in Portuguese with English translations, gives a first hand contemporaneous account of the Portuguese machinations between their first visit to the city in 1509, when they were repulsed by the local ruler, and the conquest two years later. Biographies of the main authors of the documents are included. New Paperback. Reprint. Originally published in 1993. 463 page including two maps and an index.
