Detailed Product Description

India, 1990 [1906]. 484 pp, b/w photos.  Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

Colonel Younghusband, the British officer in the Indian army, led the military operation into Tibet that Britain planned partly because of the fear of Chinese and Russian intervention in Tibet, and partly to open Tibet to British and Indian trade.

Tibet up to then had been a country closed to outside influences. Landon, a journalist with the London Times newspaper, joined the invasion to report on the events and was the first to file a report on the conditions in Tibet and Lhasa in particular, where few outsiders had been up to then.

The author describes the expedition, and life and conditions in Tibet, their religion, history, the Portola, etc. The appendices include the Natural History by Walton, the government of Tibet by O'Connor, the members of the expeditionary force, folk-lore of Tibet, etc. 'Younghusband was perhaps the last of the major players in the Great Game' (MacGreggor, Tibet a Chronicle of Exploration) and went on to do some significant exploration in other parts of the world.
