Two separate narratives: the first a sort of cultural tour of Soviet Russia in the 1920’s; the second covering the trade route from Sikkim to Gyantse. This is a very good example of the first edition in the original green cloth.

An old Etonian and part of the social milieu captured by Evelyn Waugh in Brideshead Revisited, Byron travelled to India in 1929 as special correspondent for the Daily Express, venturing into Tibet.


First edition. 8vo., xvi, 328 pp., illustrated with drawings and photographs, mostly by the author including coloured frontispiece, original green cloth gilt, dust-wrapper, a fine copy.
