Detailed Product Description
London, Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., 1933, 1st UK edition. 304 pp, 32 b/w plates, index, double page map. Tall blue cloth hardcover  with no dust jacket and circular stain to front cover. Book is otherwise tight and fine. Near Fine overall. [Neate D02.]

From a diary kept of a one-man expedition to Western Tibet. Describes mountain exploration with de Filippi in 1913-14 and on his own two month expedition in 1930 into Ladakh and the Karakoram. He mapped the Siachen Glacier. The geologist Giotto Dainelli (1878-1968) wanted to explore while beholden to no one to travel as he pleased and free to make botanical and archeological discoveries at will.

His hope is that the reader of his book ''may catch a glimpse of the grand and majestic beauty of the country and of the fine and essentially artistic intelligence of its inhabitants.''  Explorations in Western Tibet, from Kashmir to Leh, the Shyok Valley, across the Siachen Glacier and back.
