Detailed Product Description
London, 1833, 2nd edition. Volumes 1 and 2. Vol. 1 - 330 pp, Vol. 2 - 320 pp, b/w illustrations. Well worn Hardcovers with untrimmed pages of varying size, which adds charm to the books. A rare set in Very Good condition overall.

The author lived 1800-1843, and he made his tour in 1826. His excursions were chiefly in parts little known at that time. (Yakushi S266). The books include stone engravings at frontispiece by T.M. Baynes entitled Vol. 1, "Mountaineers of the Himalaya Halting to Smoke" and Vol. 2 "Hindoos Killing a Goat."

Wikipedia: Thomas Skinner (1800? 1843), was a British soldier and author. He commanded the 31st Foot in the First Anglo-Afghan War in 1842 and 1843. While there he was made a C.B. and brevet lieutenant-colonel. In 1832 he had published Excursions in India and four years later Adventures during a Journey Overland to India.
