A very good copy of this account of travels and exploration in Tibet in the late nineteenth century.  Sarat Chandra Das (1849-1917) was an Indian scholar of Tibetan language and culture.  In the course of two journeys from India to Tibet in 1879 and 1881-1882, he visited previously unknown areas and gathered many manuscripts for study.

With numerous fold out maps, drawn in ink with color, in near fine condition. 

Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
