Detailed and epic in scope, this chronicle charts the rise and development of the spice trade, which created more livelihoods, involved more nations, started more wars, and spurred more technological innovations than any other global exchange.

The narrative circles the globe several times over, from ancient Egypt’s interest in Arabian incense to the Greco-Roman search for Indian pepper and ginger, to the earth-shaking voyages of Columbus, da Gama, and Magellan. Thirty-two color images reproduce maps, artwork, and illustrations from three millennia of the spice trade.

Quantities are limited.
