Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Across Thibet: Being a Translation of De Paris Au Tonking a Travers Le Tibet Inconnu In translating the book into English, I have endeavored to remain as far as possible true to the original meaning but as the work is a very large one, I have taken it upon myself to omit certain passages - chie?y of dialogue, especially in the chapters relating to countries where other travelers had been before. The list of the collections which the explorers brought back with them has also been omitted in this edition, these collections having been exhibited in the Paris Museum, and not being des tined for England. I may add that the figures relating to the tem perature have been altered to the Fahrenheit scale throughout.

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
