Abstract

This world list was included in the back matter of A True and Large Discourse of the Voyage of the Whole Fleete of Ships Set forth the 20 of Aprill 1601 by the Government and Assistants of the East Indian Marchants in London, to the East Indies, published for Thomas Thorpe by William Alpley of London in 1603. Curiously, the mission, which did come across ships in the Straits of Melaka, does not appear to have visited Pegu. There is no indication in the text of how or where the world list was obtained. It may be possible the it was gathered from Peguan traders on ships encountered at sea or in a local trading port.
