Detailed Product Description
London, 1930s (no date), Travel Book Club edition. 312 pp, 16 photos, map. Hardcover, no Dust Jacket, Near Fine condition.

In search of the Mahatmas of Tibet is the amazing story of three separate journeys undertaken by the American author, E.G. Schary. But who are the Mahatmas of Tibet, and why did our adventurer seek to discover them? Set in the early part of the twentieth century, this book" is a travelogue of exceptional endeavour, courage and dogged determination. Always seemingly down to his last rupee, the author works, scrapes and begs his way across continents and the remote Tibetan plateau.
 
Edwin Gilbert Schary (1893-?) was an adventurous American who made three journeys into Tibet between 1912 and 1924. He was possibly the first American to enter Tibet. Two impeccable sources, Canon Tyndale-Biscoe and the British Agent in Tibet, David MacDonald, testify in the Forewords to his character and the truth of his narrative.
