"Reproduced here is the original 1873 edition of The Romance of the Harem by Anna Leonowens (long out of print), which was the source for a twentieth-century book, Anna and the King of Siam, known to us all through Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I.

"The tales in The Romance of the Harem.... speak for the women of the harem as no other writing about Nang Harm has... The irreducible factual basis of these stories is one woman looking at other women's lives.."
