Detailed Product Description
New York, Charles Scribner's, 1939, 1st edition. 344 pp, 76 b/w plates. Green cloth Ex Lib hardcover with no dust jacket. Very Good.

Bernard, an American, recounts his unprecedented 1937 stay in the forbidden holy city of Lhasa, Tibet. A student of Buddhism and Tantra, he spoke Tibetan, wore Tibetan attire, boarded with a Tibetan nobleman for three months, visited the great monasteries and temples, and met important dignitaries, ambassadors, and officials. This fantastic account is unparalleled in its detail and authenticity, and offers a glimpse into a place and time completely unrecognizable from the Tibet of today. Theos Casimir Bernard (1908 - 1947) was an author and explorer, most famous for his work in the fields of yoga and religious studies; especially Tibetan Buddhism.
