'1688 sets out a picture of the world over just one extraordinary year. This was a time when only a few travellers and merchants were aware of societies and countries beyond their own. In snapshots of cultures as diverse as the Chinese court, the Ottoman Turks, the kingdom of Siam and aboriginal Australia, 1688 reflects the variety & splendour of the human condition.'
