Item description for Siam and the West, 1500 to 1700 by Dirk Van Der Cruysse & Michael Smithies...

In a lively and engaging style, Dirk Van der Cruysse traces the history of European-Siamese relations, from the arrival of the Portuguese around the beginning of the 16th century followed by the Dutch, British, and French. Explorers, merchants, missionaries, and ambassadors came and went across the oceans, leaving behind vivid accounts of lengthy voyages, lavish courts, and strange customs.

Van der Cruysse expertly weaves together material from journals, memoirs, and other archival documents to construct a compelling historical account. Originally published as Louis XIV et le Siam, this English version has been ably translated by Michael Smithies, author of numerous books and articles on the French involvement in Siam during the 17th century.
