The Transvestite Memoirs by Abbe de Choisy
Published Peter Owen, London 1994.
Translated from the French and with an introduction by R H F Scott.
This may seem an odd choice of books to be associated with out Asian art/Thai books, but Abbe de Choisy was actually an ambassador for France to Thailand, and who authored the classic Journal ou Suite du Voyage de Siam in the 17th Century, also to be found on sale with us.
This book helps complete the picture of his rather bizarre life as a transvestite in France.
Softback in near fine condition.
