The Falcon of Siam - Axel Aylwen

London: Methuen, 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Pages lightly age-tanned.

From the cover: “This is a story of Siam — the Venice of the East, fabled land of lavish courts and dazzling wealth, a worldly Eden where innocent sensuality and exquisite power games have long coexisted in ancient harmony. But in the final years of the seventeenth century, the age-old kingdom of Siam is forced to emerge from its traditional isolation as foreign adventurers, opportunists and buccaneers approach, hungry for wealth and empire.
