In Siam is a travelogue by Émile Jottrand and his wife. Jottrand was a Belgian assistant legal adviser in the Siamese Ministry of Justice during the period 1898-1902. This lively account presents the reader with all aspects of the work of the foreign adviser as well as the life of a western wife in Bangkok and other parts of Siam. Because of his official position, Jottrand was a privileged witness to everyday life in the courts and corridors of powers and at the parties of Siamese high officialdom during the Fifth Reign. His quasi-political comments enliven the narrative of Siam’s development at the end of the nineteenth century. Émile Jottrand and his wife were gifted observers and their keen perceptions span the environment and all social aspects. Unique period photographs, discovered in the Jottrands’s private collection and from other archives, compliment the text.
