Dr Richardson's Missions to Siam 1829-1839

Dr Richardson’s manuscripts survived in the East India Company’s archives and in the contemporary Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. Anthony Farrington has now brought them together for the first time. They contain a wealth of information on Chiang Mai, Lamphun and Lampang, parts of the country, which were completely unknown to Europeans, as well as fascinating encounters in Bangkok at a crucial period in the history of early modern Siam.
