The kingdom and people of Siam by John Bowring( Book )

62 editions published between 1857 and 2016 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in two volumes in 1857, this was the most successful work of the linguist and politician Sir John Bowring (1792-1872). His varied career included work as an editor and translator, service as an M.P. in Britain and as a consul in China, and the controversial governorship of Hong Kong. His appointment to this last post in 1854 saw him aggressively assert British interests with little regard for Asian sensibilities. The following year he travelled to Siam (Thailand) to negotiate a treaty with that country which became a model for future agreements, giving the Siamese government an insight into Western diplomacy which would be invaluable. Volume 1 contains chapters on the country's geography and history; population; manners and customs; legislation; resources, industry and finances; culture and religion; and its capital, Bangkok. Volume 2 covers the political make-up of the nation, containing chapters on its dependencies and diplomatic relations"--Publisher's description

Peter Schlemihl by Adelbert von Chamisso( Book )

24 editions published between 1824 and 2007 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first published work of John Gincano, a virtually unknown master of foreboding expressionistic woodcuts. Executed at the advent of the Great Depression (the zenith of the Expressionist era), these grim woodcuts compare with the best work of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Vasily Kandinsky, and Emile Nolde. As Willy Pogany states in his preface, "Gincano's delightful woodcuts not only illustrate Schlemihl's peregrinations, but describe a life partly his own. They illuminate this charming satirical romance and are fully imbued with the whimsical spirit of the book, rendered as they are with masterful simplicity and telling originality. The idea of illustrating 'Peter Schlemihl' with woodcuts is a very fortunate one, as it not only suggests the period when Chamisso wrote this immortal fantasy, but somehow by its very nature of strong contrasts in Black and White constantly brings to mind the lost 'shadow'" (p. 4). -- vendor description
