Synopsis
For seven centuries, Chiang Mai has been the centre of a lively culture and civilization in the hills of what is now northern Thailand. Owing to widespread literacy and an energetic intellectual life, these Thai have frequently written histories. One of the most important of them, "The Chiang Mai Chronicle", was written in 1827 to explain the growth and strength of the Kingdom of Lan Na, which Chiang Mai dominated, and to forsee a glorious future in the aftermath of the terrible devastation of a generation of warfare. This first edition of "The Chiang Mai Chronicle" was prepared from a palm-leaf manuscript in the personal collection of Dr Hans Penth of Chiang Mai.
