My Boyhood in Siam
Copyright page states, "Copyright, 1938, 1940, by Kumut Chandruang," no additional printings mentioned. Book is tight, square, and unmarked; appears unread. Top page edges a uniform dark gray. Orange boards with black type are clean and bright; corners sharp; spine ends only mildly bumped. The dust jacket is not price-clipped (original price $2.00); light edgewear and chipping to the spine ends and corners. The Oriental/deco illustration on the front panel and spine remains vivid. An exceptional copy of an unusual late-1930s book. In a 1941 review "The Nation" called it "apparently the first book about Siam, Thailand, to be written in English by a Siamese without the aid of a professional ghost." Brodart-protected.
