LEONOWENS, ANNA:
"The English Governess at the Siamese". / The Atlantic Monthly. Four volumes. Boston, Fields Osgood, & Co., April-June & August 1870.
. Comprises four original articles titled "The English Governess at the Siamese Court" issued in serialised form in the Atlantic Monthly by Anna Leonowens. (Volume XXV, nos. 150-152 and volume XXVI no 154). They were published before the enlarged text in book form (Boston 1870). As issued in original paper wrappers, two spines lightly chipped. This well-known account by an English governess is about her life with the Royal family of Siam (Thailand). King Mongkut (or Rama IV), a well-educated and fashionable man, wanted to give his children an European education. Anna Leonowens spent six years (1862-67) at the court where she taught the King's children and wives. Her "exotic" articles and memoirs received a lot of attention but the accuracy of her work has been questioned. Otherwise it is a charming story which Margaret Landon used for her novel "Anna and the King of Siam" (1944) and it was followed by a musical and a film "The King and I". Cordier BI 738. See Robinson p.139.

LEONOWENS, ANNA:
"Favourite of Harem" and "L'ore, the slave of a Siamese Queen". Atlantic Monthly (Volume XXX nos. 179 + 180). Two volumes. Boston, James. R. Osgood and Co., September and October 1872.
. Two original articles later incorporated into Leonowens' book "Romance of the Harem" published in 1873. As issued in original printed wrappers. Uncut, in perfect condition. Anna Leonowens, an English governess who for six years was employed by the Siamese King Mongkut (Rama IV) for the instruction of his children including his son and successor Prince Chulalongkorn. Later she resided in New York where she contributed articles to the Atlantic Monthly, a literary and cultural commentary magazine founded in Boston in 1857. Leonowens' memoirs of the Siamese court life have been considered exaggerated and unfair but nevertheless it is a captivating story which was used for Landon's novel "Anna and the King of Siam" and later in a musical and film. Cf. Cordier BI 738.
