As early as 1665 John Chardin son of a French merchant jeweller accompanied one of his father's business associates Antoine Raisin of Lyon on a voyage to Persia. Chardin was aged just twenty-one. Raisin and Chardin successfully conducted business with Shah Abbas II securing a profitable commission for jewels before proceeding further east to India in search of diamonds and thereby establishing links with the East Indies trade. Returning to Persia on the way home to Europe Chardin witnessed the coronation of Suleiman III in 1669 (an account of which is to be found at the rear of the present work). Compelled by an "earnest desire to improve my knowledge in that vast Empire to be enabled to produce to the World useful and Ample Relations of it". N° de ref. de la librería 211409
