Detailed Product Description
New York, 1966, 1st edition. 282 pp, b/w photos. Tan cloth Ex Lib hardcover with pieces of dust jacket tipped onto FEPs and less than normal library marks and wear. Near Fine.

Story of the famous owner of the Royal Hotel of Kathmandu, with its Yak and Yeti bar. The amazing life of Russian born Boris Lissanevitch, who went from Tsarist Russia, through the Russian revolution, to a career as a famous dancer with Diaghilev's Ballet Russe, to Calcutta during the British Raj, where he helped to found and manage the exclusive 300 Club and finally to the beautiful kingdom of Nepal and life as Host of the Royal Hotel.
 
During all of this he found time to play an important part in the Coronation of the King of Nepal; try to establish a scheme for overland cruises from Britain to Nepal; hunted man-eating tigers; took part in an anthropological expedition to Hollywood with two fabulously rich Maharajahs; and he was the first to think of growing strawberries in Nepal.
