About this Item

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.
