A Description of the Kingdom of Siam 1690 by Engelbert Kaempfer

Itineraria Asiatica Series

Itineraria Asiatica is a series of historical reprints of books containing first-hand descriptions and narratives by travellers in Asia. The books, published by Orchid Press in Bangkok, are paperbacks boxed in beautiful slipcases.

The writer of this account of Siam in 1690, Dr. Engelbert Kaempfer, is not well known today, partly because his account of Siam was not published separately, but appeared as the first three chapters of the author's "History of Japan", first published in 1727. The value of Dr. Kaempfer's account of Siam in this period lies in it being from a non-French, non-Catholic observer who had no attachment to any of the various factions in Thai society or any responsibility to further the christian faith in that society.
