Synopsis

This account of Kosa Pan's journal describes in great detail the arrival in Brest in 1686 of the first full Siamese embassy to reach France. This fragment is apparently all that survives of a massive report of the activities of the embassy written for King Narai. It was discovered in Paris in the early 1980s, was published in Thai in 1984, and appears here in English for the first time.

Dirk Van der Cruysse of the Royal Academy of Belgium is professor of French culture and literature at the University of Antwerp. He is author of Siam and the West, 1500-1700. Michael Smithies, former editor of the Journal of the Siam Society, is the author of numerous books and articles on the French involvement in Siam in the 17th century.
