In the original unclipped dust wrapper, in a protective wrapper, a few small edge chips, slightly sunned to rear of wrapper. No inscriptions.
Sir Francis Younghusband 1863-1942. Soldier, explorer, geographer, naturalist, diplomat, philosopher and mystic.
Two achievements of Sir Francis Younghusband capture the imagination: "one, his penetration as a youth of the Continent of Asia from East to West by an unknown route, immediately followed by his crossing of the Himalayas by an unknown pass; the other, his expedition through Tibet to Lhasa.". This volume provides an carefully woven biography told through the journals, correspondence, manuscripts etc provided by Younghusband's daughter, by the eminent biographer, George Seaver (1896-1976)
