Uncut. Light browning, some minor marginal stains. In good to very good condition. (2 ll.), iii, 387 pp., large folding map printed in colors. *** First edition thus: a partial reprint of the three-volume Mission scientifique dans la haute Asie, Paris, 1897-98, in 3 quarto volumes plus an atlas volume. An English translation of the volume on Tibet appeared in London, 1904.Jules Léon Dutreuil de Rhins (1846-1894), a French geographer and explorer born at Saint-Etienne, was a world traveler: midshipman on an expedition to Mexico, commander of the Scorpion for the King of Annam (Vietnam), military service in the French Congo (Gabon). In 1890 he proposed an expedition to survey the mountains bordering Tibet and to make the French the first Europeans to reach Lhasa, situated in a valley of the Himalayas at an altitude of 3,600 m. His party (including orientalist Fernand Grenard, his assistant) spent much of 1891-1892 exploring the Kunlun and Karakoram ranges south and southwest of the Takla Makan desert. By 1893 they arrived in Cherchen (Qarqan), setting out for Lhasa with the celebrated guide Mohammed Isa, who had traveled with Francis Younghusband in 1887. They entered Tibet via a route never before traversed by Europeans, but at Tegri Nor (Nam Co), they were halted by a Tibetan delegation. After 50 days of negotiation, the expedition - many of whose members were now ill, and whose supplies were running low - were forced to give up their attempt to reach Lhasa, and turned toward China. They crossed the longest branch of the Mekong (a feat not equaled for another century), but near Tungbundo they were attacked by a party of Tibetans. Dutureuil de Rhins was bound and flung alive into the river. After three weeks trying to recover his leader's body and the expedition's luggage, Grenard headed to Sining in July 1894, then to Peking. Dutreuil de Rhins's account of the expedition was edited for publication by Grenard.*** Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration 1850-1940: Continental Exploration, D37: with a very detailed description of the route. Cordier, Sinica IV, 2893. Copac locates a copy at Cambridge University. Seller Inventory # 21727
