A Concise History of Buddhist Art in Siam Paperback / softback
Originally published in 1938, this book provides a history of the variety of forms of Buddhist art that grew up in Thailand from the 1st century AD to the end of the 16th century.
Le May draws on his experience as part of the British Consular Service in Thailand to focus primarily on sculpture, how the trade routes in South and South-East Asia brought Thailand into contact with a variety of artistic styles and how the different areas of the country adapted these styles for their own use.
This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of Thai art specifically or of Eastern art more generally.
