Detailed Product Description
New Delhi, The English Bookstore, 1974. 116 pp, 118 color photos, 3 maps, 6 figures, glossary, photographic endpapers. Original red cloth large format hardcover with dust jacket in slipcase. Cover is slightly bowed. Near Fine.

The author collected facts and figures on the life of the Nepalese, and the Sherpas in particular, during a mountaineering pilgrimage on Everest. Information includes Lama rites, transmigration of the soul, and the sacred respect for animals along with Sherpa society, villages and domestic life. [Yakushi F11.] 
 
Despite the New Delhi publisher, the photos were printed in Italy by the same printing company that did the European editions, so the printing and paper for the color photos are of the same high quality as the UK or US editions. The text was printed in New Delhi.

This is a large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.
