Detailed Product Description
UK, 1927, 1st UK edition. 262 pp, 87 b/w photos, large folding colored map in pocket at back cover (from surveys by Surveyor Gujjar Singh, Survey of India, showing Hayden's route with larger scale inset of Shigatse - Lhasa area). The book exterior is in Fine condition and interior is Bright and Fine, with the slightest age yellowing to the pages, no writing or foxing. Also includes the original dust jacket which is in impeccable condition and rare. Jacket has two minor chips under 1/32"and slightest edge wear, but remarkably no major flaws.

Sir Henry Hayden's connection with Tibet began when he accompanied the 1904 Younghusband Mission as geologist and it was then that he conceived the ambition of visiting the lakes to the north of Lhasa. In 1922, after retiring as Director of the Geological Survey of India, he made this journey with the alpine guide, Cosson, with whom he died in an avalanche in the Alps the following year, just after completing this book.

The interesting and readable text is accompanied by excellent photographs and there is an introduction by Sir Francis Younghusband. Hayden's visit was made at the invitation of the Tibetan government who sought geological help on the exploitation of their mineral deposits. He includes detailed comments on the inhabitants of Lhasa. There was also some hunting from northern to southern Tibet in search of blue sheep, gazelle and antelope plus other sheep species.
