The Jummoo and Kashmir Territories: A Geographical Account
London: Edward Stanford, 1875. Rare 1st edition, of which the 1877 book 'The Northern Barrier of India' is an abridgement. Has 568 pp. incl. index; many illustrations including 4 Woodbury-types (an uncommon printing process which makes photographs seem very lucid and 3-dimensional); and in the rear, folding maps; a Snow Map, a Race Map, a Language Map, a Faith Map, a Political Map, chart of 3 Isometric Views, and a chart of 4 Vertical Sections. There is also a folding chart, 'Genealogy of the Rajas of Jummo', to accompany Appendix 6. The binding is 3/4 leather, very worn, and professionally rebacked. The original leather of the spine has been preserved; the title can barely be read. Marbled boards (matching endpapers) rubbed, bookplate on front pastedown. The brittle free endpapers are both breaking at the new hinges. The text is mostly very clean; there are a couple of fingerprints in the margin of the photo, 'Kashmiri Brahmans'. Another photo, 'Dards', has a sm. chipped-off corner. The folding maps have outer edges a bit worn, but otherwise are nice; the Isometric Views have a tear starting at the bottom near the spine; the Vertical Sections is torn and separated at the first fold. Finally, the General Map which is supposed to be in the rear pocket is not present; a 'Map to Accompany the Travels of Captain Abbott', from another book, is there instead (it shows the Caspian Sea and parts of Persia & Afghanistan). Overall g+.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Illus. by Francis Frith photos.
