Royal Siamese Maps: War and Trade in Nineteenth Century Thailand

By Santanee Phasuk & Philip Stott

In 1996, seventeen exquisite hand-drawn and hand-coloured cotton maps were discovered in the Grand Palace. These long-lost treasures record cartographically Siamese warfare and trade during the first three reigns of the Bangkok period (1782-1851). Large in size, and works of art in themselves, the maps are full of historical and landscape detail ensuring that they will become important primary sources for historians and geographers of Southeast Asia for many years to come. Focusing on Siam and her immediate neighbours, the collection also includes a remarkable four-metre coastal map extending from peninsular Malaysia to Korea.

Now preserved and safely curated in the Library of HRH Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, it is the purpose of this beautifully illustrated book to introduce these exiting discoveries to the general public and to scholars, antiquarians and cartographic historians. Royal Siamese Maps is a lively account of the finding, the dating, the cartographic characteristics, and historical significance of these rare remnants of the Siamese heritage. In addition, they will overturn the conventional view of indigenous map-making in Southeast Asia.

Dr. Santanee Phasuk gained her doctorate in cartography from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Professor Emeritus Philip Stott was professor of Geography at SOAS.
