An English consul in Siam: a memoir, 1896-1932
Kegan Paul, 2003/06/01 - 186 ページ
The author of these fascinating reminiscences spent thirty-six years in Siam and Anglo-Siamese life. Coming to Bangkok in 1896 as an entrepreneur and at the age of eighteen, Wood began his career in the Consular Service, ultimately serving as His Majesty's Consul General in Chiengmai by 1932. These charming glimpses into Siamese life from an English perspective are unique and a must for anyone interested in Thailand and its history.
