The History, Romance and Adventure of the Spice Trade
In this book Burnet traces the more than 2,000 year history and the uses of cloves and nutmeg, indigenous to the Spice Islands of Eastern Indonesia. He follows the Silk Road across Central Asia and the Spice Route over the Indian Ocean, and shows how the spice trade into Europe came to be dominated by Middle Eastern and Venetian merchants. Much of the story is told through the lives of historical characters, as well as Sir Francis Drake, Jan Pieterzoon Coen, Pierre Poivre, and others who are lesser known but equally important. 200 pages.
