Siam on the Meinam $22.00

Siam on the Meinam From the Gulf to Ayuthia by Maxwell Sommerville

Together With Three Romances Illustrative of Siamese Life and Customs

Siam on the Meinam from the Gulf to Ayuthia has 2 parts The first part covers all aspects of life in Bangkok in 1897. The author describes his trip from Singapore to Bangkok; the hotel, the city, the bazaars, Wat Poh, evening on the Meinam, the library, the museum, Wat Cheng, prison and shop (with interesting remarks on who was kept in prison on what reasons), theaters and gambling houses, up the river and Ayuthia The second part contains three romances illustrative of Siamese life and customs The author obviously had access to stories from the North as they deal with relationship with Karen and production of Burmese style Buddha images. It is remarkable that at that time someone recorded stories and life from up-country, a time when history was normally only court history but not of the common people far away from the center The book is richly illustrated, with additional period postcards.
