Detailed Product Description

Kathmandu, 2000. Notes on a journey of several thousand miles through imperfectly known portions of the Chinese Empire, including Mongolia and Tibet. Facts concerning the country of a historical, geographical, and ethnographical nature. Illustrated with many beautifully detailed pen and ink drawings of ornamental objects, interiors of dwellings - tents, caves, etc, household items, people, maps. This is a classic on an area that has gone through much change in the 20th century.

Pictures of Tibetan people, landscapes, artifacts, clothing, prayer wheels, statues, coins, cooking implements, and much more. Facts concerning the historical, geographical, topographical and ethnographical nature of the journey. William Woodville Rockhill (1854-1914) was the American Minister to China, an authority on Buddhism and a Tibetan expert. He was the first American to speak, read and write Tibetan (he was able to converse with the Dalai Lama in his own language!) and the first to explore the Tibetan highlands. Rockhill was best known as the framer of America's 'Open Door' policy toward China. He played an important role in the development of the collection of Asian books at the Library of Congress and in making the Library one of the world's leading centers for Tibetan books. Paperback, New.
