  1. I agree about the importance of this book for anyone interested in the history of the region in 17th century. It can be read online from archive.org – Google ‘geographical account of countries’, and up it should come. I don’t think it requires access from University accounts.


  2. Very true but pre-owned copies widely and cheaply available. Worthwhile to have on your desk for reference if you wish, for example, to convert the different currencies of the region during the period or may want to understand the derivation of various terms.
