Reprint of Hedin's monumental work on his explorations and researches in South Tibet during the years 1906-08. Apart from the accounts of Hedin's travels and explorations, the volumes comprehensively cover other discoveries, research and explorations over the ages in the area by Chinese and Europeans. A mammoth undertaking. Altogether 462 plates and 333 maps (many folding or double-page). Whilst the reprint obviously lacks the quality of the original work, the plates, maps and text are adequate and represent an opportunity to own this huge and important work at a fraction of the price of the original. Altogether 462 plates and 333 maps (many folding or double-page). See Yakushi Catalogue of the Himalayan Literature H105 for details of contents. Marshall 2096.
