        Three Years in Tibet with the original Japanese illustrations

      Adyar, Madras: The Theosophist Office, 1909. Cloth. Good +. xv, 719 p. 63 b&w in-text illustrations, 11 b&w plates (including a fold-out of Mt. Everest at rear), one fold-out map at rear. Green cloth hardcover with gold print. Spine sunned and boards a little discoloured. Top corners bumped. Ink signature and pencil notes on front free endpaper. Text very clean. Ekai Kawaguchi (1866 – 1945) is famous for his four journeys to Nepal and two to Tibet. He was apparently the first recorded Japanese citizen to travel in either country. The first of his journeys to Tibet, the one recorded in this volume, was from 1900 to 1902. Since Tibet was at that time closed to foreigners, Kawaguchi had to first study the Tibetan language in Nepal, then sneak into the country disguised as a Tibetan. A Buddhist monk, he was searching for original Mahayana Buddhist manuscripts. Eventually his Japanese nationality was revealed and he was forced to leave. Publication of Kawaguchi's book in English was arranged by his friend, Theosophical Society President Mrs. Annie Besant. According to the Preface (p. vii), Mrs. Besant believed books by Western authors portrayed Tibet from their own Western point of view, while Kawaguchi's tale would present an Asian view of Tibet to the world. Kawaguchi's tale remains an excellent adventure tale, allowing the reader to imagine what it's like to travel to a totally foreign and forbidding country - with no safety net.

        Psalm 67.

      N.p. A single sheet, measuring 29 by 20 inches, folded once. This large scale illustration features a priest at an altar with his followers. Their arms and faces are uplifted to the sky as they invoke the verse from Psalm 67 which appears as the companion text to this illustration: "Scatter thou the nations that delight in wars:/ ambassadors shall come out of Egypt:/ Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands to God." The artist demonstrates a lighter vein of the satirical wit he came to be associated with: men who symbolize "the nations that delight in wars" meet, greet, and shake hands as if to finalize treaties and seal political deals -- in stark contrast to the religious fervor above. Tegetmeier (1909-1987) became associated with the Roman Catholic circle of the sculptor-artist Eric Gill, working with Gill in cutting and painting the Great War memorial at New College, and eventually becoming his son-in-law. The back of the illusration is signed "E.G. Drawing" in what appears to be Eric Gill's script, suggesting that this copy was a part of his personal collection. Minor overall soiling, small closed tears to right margin, bands of light toning top and bottom.

After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.
