Wintroub presents a micro-historical and cross-disciplinary analysis of the texts and contexts that informed the remarkable journey of the French ship captain, merchant, and poet, Jean Parmentier, from Dieppe to Sumatra in 1529. He explores the shifting and interpenetrating religious, epistemic, and technical practices employed on the voyage.
