About this Item: [London} 1934, Geographical Journal. New stiff blue wrs., very good, clean copy, extracted article, pp.483-497, 15.5 x 25 cm. FIRST AND ONLY OBSCURE EDITION Excellent early primary resource for the Gobi, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang area. * Lattimore was a well-respected scholar who was fluent in both Chinese and Mongolian. No small feat at the time. He was also well-underwritten by some of the most famous institutions who sponsored his research and Central Asian travels. His books are authoritative, fascinating and give keen insights to the complex relationships in Central Asia, the political forces, the cultural variations of the divergent peoples and the geography. His works are a valuable resource for areas largely neglected at the time mostly because the area was closed for such a long time. Against the odds, he won his way into Mongolia and Central Asia and did his research while traveling in the most primitive areas by the traditional camel, donkey and yak cart. He talked to the people, understood their ways and culture. His record is a valuable insight to who and what was going from the 1920's down to the 1940's. * Lattimore was a lecturer at Harvard University, researcher for many years at the Social Science Research Council, Harvard-Yenching Institute, and the Guggenheim Foundation as well as at the Institue of Pacific Relations. He was also the Director of the Walter Hines Page School of International Relations at Johns Hopkins University. * Scans can be sent by email. Seller Inventory # 41018501

About this Item: Los Angeles [1949], Institute of Mentalphysics. Red cloth, 560p., 59 b.w. photos, very good. A monumental work and primary source by the first American to walk across the whole of China. Also the record of his long residence in Tibet. This grand primary work is truly a magnificent resource. Two books bound in one. ACROSS CHINA ON FOOT begins with his starting point in Shanghai and his journey up the Yangtze to Chung-king, and Sui-Fu via Luchow, where the actual foot journey began. * A great description of the people of Szech'wan, to Yun-nan and the tribes and the mission work among them. To Chao-t'ong-fu. Departure for Burma, comments on Yun-nan the capital. To Tali-fu, Chinese untruthfulness, storm in the mountains, arrival at Tali-fu nd the great Mekong valley. Opium smokers, the river Mekong through the Salween valley to Tengyueh, and the Li-su tribes then on to Bhamo in upper Burma, the Shans & Kachins, end of a long journey. * The second title MY LIFE IN TIBET.

Of the people he met, the spiritual encounters with Lamas and high priests in the high mountains of Tibet, while resident in a temple. Later upon his return he established the Institute of Mental Physics in Los Angeles, California. * This source is loaded with ethnographic and other keen observations. A thoroughly useful work the last of a breed of pre-World War II explorers & travelers who actually went on their journey by foot.
