Book Description Minerva Press, U.K., 1974. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. New edition. This is one of a couple of dozen or so titles published by this remarkable man, mostly between the 20's and 50's, and mostly recounting the adventurous expeditions he went on during his 50 years as an explorer, botanist and plant collector. First published by Gollancz in 1930, this book is illustrated with sepia photographs, and comes with Preface, Appendix and Index. Minerva Press also re-issued another of Kingdon-Ward's books, "The Land of the Blue Poppy". It has a satisfyingly solid and old-fashioned feel, this book, with its green cloth and stained top edge, hefty paper stock, sepia photographs and good dark print. This copy is near fine in a very good dust jacket indeed with wear to top of spine and the ghost of a label on front panel. Bookseller Inventory # 000305

Book Description Minerva., 1974. Book Condition: Very Good. Hard Cover. Book- VG+. DJ- VG, protective covered. 9.5x6. 224pp. Frontis, 15 b/w plates, 3 maps. Frank Kingdon Ward's journey of 1926 took him to the remotest frontier of northern Burma, and he returned through Assam; in 1928 he retraced part of his previous path in search of a different collecting area. His two years' travels on the roof of the world, pursuing his work as a professional plant-hunter, are recounted with skill and precision. Adventures in unknown forests and untrodden mountain ranges are tempered with the discovery of botanical riches. Bookseller Inventory # 1452556
