About this Item

First edition: Description of the Kannaur (or Kun?w?r) region of the Himalayas, taken from the late Capt. Gerard's papers and edited by George Lloyd. Charles William Wason, in the Monthly Review (1841 collected volume), opened his review of this work by saying "Captain Alexander Gerard, and his brother Dr. J.G. Gerard, have been deservedly ranked amongst the most enterprising scientific travellers to whom Great Britain has given birth," and he went on to predict that this volume "will be regarded as a precious contribution to science, and to geographical knowledge." Gerard's observations cover botany, linguistics, culture, and commerce, as well as geography. The area of his travels is depicted by an => oversized, folding map of his own design. 8vo (23 cm, 9"). xiii, [3], 190, [2], [195]?308 (i.e., 310), xxvi, [2 (adv.)] pp.; 1 fold. map.
