Detailed Product Description
New York, D. Appleton, 1924 reprint, 282 pp, frontispiece photo of author: Ghulam Rassul Galwan, Aksakal of Leh, Kashmir, India. Red cloth Ex Lib hardcover with gilt titles on cover and spine and no dust jacket. The usual library stamps and marks but less wear than the typical Ex Library book. Near Fine.

With an introduction by Sir Francis Younghusband. 

[Yakushi G-23] "Diaries of the Himalayan travels by a Ladakhi Muslim. To Lhasa in 1895 with Littledales and W. A. L. Fletcher, and return journey through Rudok, Pankong, Leh and Srinagar; from Leh to Yarkand with Younghusband in 1899."


From Introduction by Francis Younghusband: "It is written by one of themselves–by a Mohamedan of Ladak, who had worked for many years in the service of English and American travellers in the Himalaya, Central Asia and Tibet. The secret is that these men, the best of them, love adventure just as much as their employers. Written in faulty English, but with the instinct of a true artist, we see on every page the spirit which animated Rassul."
