Hedin, Sven. Trans-Himalaya. Discoveries and Adventures in Tibet. Macmillan & Co, London 1910, (1st 1909) Vol 1 & 2; Vol 3 1913. 3 vols, thick 8vo, 436pp, 423pp & 426pp, b&w photographic illustrations & drawings throughout, folding maps, index, top edge gilt. Orig. red gilt cloth, spine uniformly and lightly sunned; a very nice copy indeed. A fascinating primary source about Tibet, which had not previously been explored or mapped by a westerner. Dr. Hedin's works are quite scarce & sought after for their account of Hedin's courage and their thorough ethnographic & scientific record.
