About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for TO LHASA IN DISGUISE. A Secret Expedition Through Mysterious Tibet by McGovern William Montgomery.

Description:

First edition, second impression. With a portrait frontispiece and 23 illustrations from photographs on glossy plates and four maps within the text. 8vo, original publisher’s blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and upper cover. 352 pp. A very good and pleasing copy, the cloth well preserved though somewhat mellowed at the back as is generally the case, the text-block and hinges are in good order with a bit of the usual mellowing. FIRST EDITION, EARLY IMPRESSION, OF THIS CORNERSTONE WORK. Travels in 1922 to Lhasa through Sikkim as part of the British "Buddhist Mission." During the trip McGovern was granted a secret interview with the Dalai Lama. Lhasa, in fact all of Tibet, was at the time rigidly guarded against outside visitors. Facing insurmountable obstacles (certainly not the least of which was being caught in his intrusion), McGovern refused to be turned away at the border and instead with the help of only one servant entered the country in disguise.

Book Description Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1924. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+. Reprint. B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light bumping and rubbing. The text pages are mostly clean and bright. There is an ink stamped previous owner's name and address on the half title page. "William Montgomery McGovern (September 28, 1897 – December 12, 1964) was an American adventurer, political scientist, Northwestern University professor, anthropologist and journalist. He was possibly an inspiration for the character of Indiana Jones. [1][2]McGovern's life may be more incredible than the fictional character he spawned. By age 30, he had already explored the Amazon and braved uncharted regions of the Himalayas, survived revolution in Mexico, studied at Oxford and the Sorbonne and become a Buddhist priest in a Japanese monastery. He became a beloved lecturer, war correspondent and military strategist. " (from Wikipedia). Seller Inventory # A37162
