Mongol Journeys

£34.99

Product description

First published in 1941, Owen Lattimore's leisurely paced account of travels through Mongolia for armchair travellers and Asiatic connoisseurs, providing a convincing, albeit vicarious, experience of a remote country: every aspect of native life, travel, customs, together with the place these people inhabit in Oriental affairs. From cookery to handling camels, from caravanning and camping to racial characteristics and forms of conversation, observations on China, Japan and Russia and their interests in Mongolia, plus the reverse side of the picture in the Mongolian attitude towards all three.
The book is bound in blue cloth which, although a little bumped to corners, head and tail of the spine, and there is a 5 cm closed split at the rear base of the spine, remains bright. Text block edges are a little age toned but all text is clear, foxing on text pages is minimal and there are several intriguing b/w photographs to enhance the text.
