Siamese Cats - Legends and Reality $54.17

Siamese Cats: Legends and Reality by Martin Clutterbuck

New volume replacing the 1998 book The Legend of Siamese Cats

Siamese Cats: Legends and Reality is another essential read for cat-lovers everywhere. It is a radically revised and expanded version of the successful 1998 book The Legend of Siamese Cats. While retaining the former volume?s core attraction of translations of the famous Thai Cat Book Poems from mediaeval times, this new book delves more deeply into the real Thai cats as they progressed from then until the present day. Each major Thai breed ? Siamese, Korat, Burmese and more ? is covered extensively, including detailed genetic studies, their present status in Thailand and their history in the West. Special chapters have also been added on the cats? relations with Thai royalty and the Buddhist priesthood, and various myths about these venerable institutions are confirmed or disproved. A new chapter on the wide application of Thai cat bloodlines to develop western breeds well illustrates how Thailand is indeed a cat superpower. Finally, a new appendix reproduces the 1924 "Siamese Cat Register".

Reviews for the first edition:

"An entertaining look at Thailand?s famous cats." ? Bangkok Post

"A landmark in Thai publishing." ? The Nation

"Probably one of the most important books on cats to have been written in years? a source of delight and knowledge for cat lovers everywhere." ? Cat World
