Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., London, England, 1933, 1st UK edition. 304 pp, 32 plates, index, fold-out map.

His hope is that the reader of his book ''may catch a glimpse of the grand and majestic beauty of the country and of the fine and essentially artistic intelligence of its inhabitants.''  Explorations in Western Tibet, from Kashmir to Leh, the Shyok Valley, across the Siachen Glacier and back. Hardcover, no dust jacket, some foxing, Near Fine exterior.
