Description
In 1996, 17 exquisite hand-drawn and colored maps on linen were discovered in the Grand Palace, Bangkok; these long-lost treasures record Siamese warfare and trade during the first three reigns of the Bangkok Period (17821851). They are also works of art in their own right (many are gorgeously illustrated with features of the region, and one is a remarkable four-meter-long coastal map extending from peninsular Malaysia through China to Korea) and completely overturn the conventional view of indigenous mapmaking in Southeast Asia. This book, handsomely bound in burgundy cloth with gold foil stamping and a ribbon marker, closely examines these beautiful maps and their context in historical Thailand with 378 color reproductions, detail views, drawings, and photographs.
