Detailed Product Description
New York, 1906, 1st edition. 356 pp, b/w photos, maps, color foldout map at back has been torn free, is largely intact but fragile. Gold cloth hardcover - no dust jacket issued. Spine faded, some stains on page bottoms not affecting text. Very Good condition.

An important history of Tibet, from 1328 to the travels of Rawling in 1904. This is a fascinating work on the exploration of Tibet, illustrating the sequence of exploration of that great wilderness of stony and inhospitable altitudes which lie far beyond Lhasa.
 
After briefly outlining Tibet's historical and geographical evolution, Holdich records the exploration of Tibet from the Mogul invasion through to the 1903-04 British Expedition led by Younghusband. In an age of constant travel and exploration of different cultures, Holdich's century-old text provides a refreshing read. Describes the voyages of Bogle, Manning, Moorcroft, Huc. Gabet, Rockhill, Deasy, Stein among others.
