Spotting to verso of the folding map and rear endpaper. Light rubbing and wear. No inscriptions or annotations. A nice copy.

Frederick Marshman Bailey (1882–1967) FRGS. "Bailey was a member of the mission to Lhasa in 1903–4 led by Francis Younghusband to resolve the intransigence of the Tibetan government in implementing the Anglo-Chinese convention of 1890... In 1911 he embarked on an expedition to explore the Tsangpo River... Bailey decided to enter in the east from China; he therefore obtained a passport in Peking (Beijing) which allowed him to travel through Szechwan (Sichuan) and Yunnan. He travelled to Ichang (Yichang) on the Yangtze (Yangzi) by steamer and from there hired a small boat to take him through the Yangtze gorges. He trekked through this most difficult mountainous area to Tatsienlu (Dajianlu) and eventually to Batang on the Tibetan frontier. He did not, however, manage to reach the Tsangpo, but returned to India through Mishmi country." O.D.N.B.
In this book China—Tibet—Assam he gives a fine account of his journey.
