Traduites de l'Anglais avec des Notes, par J. Castéra.

The first French edition of the official account of Captain Michael Symes's embassy to Burma in 1795. Sent by the Governor General of India, Sir John Shore, Symes was to negotiate with the Burmese king, not only to bring stability to the eastern borders of India but also to get the Burmese ports closed to French warships. Symes was only partially successful, winning the right for a Company's agent to reside in Rangoon. Thirty years later the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-6) was a long and very costly campaign. Symes's account of his expedition was Europe's first realistic account of Burma, with illustrations of costumes, temples, the Burmese alphabet, boats and plants including an orchid.
