Note:Struys produced a very interesting and lively account of his three voyages. The plates illustrate mostly sites in Persia and the East. "However, Struys kept no diary, so that by the time his narrative was finally published in 1676, his fanciful imagination had somewhat distorted the reality behind his journey. At sea he experienced typhoons, shipwrecks, hunger and captivity, and was several times sold as a slave, a misfortune always guaranteed to delight a seventeenth-century audience" (Howgego)
