Detailed Product Description
London, Hutchinson, 1952, 1st edition. 306 pp, 60 b/w plates. Rust cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Minor edge wear on DJ, but no chips  tears.  Near Fine.

SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Fosco Maraini in English and dated Feb 10, 1993. Maraini signatures are very scarce in America.



Also enclosed is a 4''x6'' color photo of Maraini, and Signed on the reverse side.

Maraini accompanied Tucci to Lhasa in 1948. A superb portrait of Tibet. In this book, Fosco Maraini recounts his travels to Tibet in 1939 and 1948, before it fell to China. He brings back to life a world which will never be seen again. In the tradition of Italian travelers from the days of Marco Polo, Maraini went to Tibet to learn, to understand, to give, and to receive. His encounter with the people of Tibet, from princesses to peasants, aided as he was by a good knowledge of the language, is a true meeting of minds. The text, which attests to the disciplines of the scholar allied to the sensitivity of the poet, is enriched by the narrative value of the author's photographs, including many Buddhist temple artifacts now forever lost.
