Albert Bonniers, Stockholm. 1911 - First edition. Octavo. Two volumes: pp 476, [4] index; 600, [3] index. Illustrations and maps. Original blue pictorial cloth lettered in gilt and with circular panels depicting the two halves of the globe on front.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Till Fröken Ella Heckscher [?] hjärtligt tack fran Sven Hedin". The presentee Ella Heckscher (1882-1964) was a Sweden genealogist. She was the daughter of Legal Counsel, National Financial and Consul General Isidor Heckscher and was also the sister of the famous economic historian, Professor Eli F. Heckscher. Spine of Vol. I just a little bruised at head and tail. A very good set indeed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
