JOURNAL DU VOYAGE DE SIAM, FAIT EN 1685 & 1686 

Publisher: Sebastien Mabre Cramoisy 1687 2nd French ed
ISBN or SBN Number: n/a. Important travel account of the embassy of the priest François-Timoléon de Choisy (1644-1724) sent to Siam by Louis XIV with the intention of converting the king to christianity, which did not happen. Choisy's account is very enthusiastic, and even highly coloured. The text is in the form of a diary, and is written in an attractive style, telling about details of the voyage and the experiences in Siam. Two sections of the book deal with their short experiences at the Cape. The book is a classic that has repeatedly been reprinted due to the importance of this particular embassy, . In contemporary calf binding, somewhat rubbed at extremities, some loss at top and bottom of spine, some age-toning of pages; hinges a little fragile, repaired at rear, but holding. Still a very attractive copy of an uncommon early edition. Bookplate and ownership on endpapers. All books are shipped from South Africa. We will email with price quote for shipping.
