Diary of A Pedestrian in Cashmere and Thibet. C. Knight.

Diary of A Pedestrian in Cashmere and Thibet

London: Richard Bentley, 1863. First. Hardcover. 385 pp, ill, some tinted. Description of a long journey undertaken by the soldier. From the plains to Cashmere, a halt in the valley, into little Thibet, Kadak and the Monastery of Hemis, back to the valley and home again. Also a chapter on the religions of Cashmere and Tibet and appendices on the temples of Cashmere, mystic sentences of Thibet and the history of Cashmere. An important early work. Internally better than VG. Externally the original cloth has been expertly relaid on new cloth but at outside gutters the new cloth shows through. Better than it sounds. Original end paper have been retained and there is very little, as in almost no, foxing. VG. Item #1858
