Across Thibet. Being a Translation of "De Paris Au Tonking a Travers Le Tibet Inconnu" With Illustrations from Photographs Taken By Prince Henry of Orleans
New York: Cassell Publishing Company, 1892. Pp. xiii, 417. Illustrated with 106 black & white engravings + 2 not listed (of which 25 are full-page plates). Front pocket contains the scarce coloured folding map showing Bonvalot's Route. Grey cloth illustrated with a camel train in gilt, brown and black, bevelled edges, top edge gilt, others deckled. Cloth slighly rubbed and soiled, spine faded, edges dusty, a couple of tiny tears to the map seams, otherwise a very handsome, clean, bright copy. "Starting from the frontiers of Siberia, and coming out at the other end of Asia, on the coast of the new French colony of Tonquin, M. Bonvalot and his companions traversed not only that portion of Thibet which several English travelers, such as Dalgleish and Carey, and the great Russian Prjevalsky, had explored, but going beyond the limits which their predecessors had reached, forced their way over the table-lands and came out on the other side, this journey being one which no European had ever accomplished; the only persons who had trodden the same paths being the Thibetans on their way to and from the holy city of Lhassa." from the Translator's Preface.. First American Edition. Original Cloth. Very Good. Octavo.
