Product description

Kashmir

Described by Sir Francis Younghusband, KCIE

Painted by Major E Molyneux

Adam and Charles Black, London, 1909.

Hardback; 175 x 230 mm; decorative boards with titles in gold on spine and front cover; xvi & 283 pages plus 2 unpaginated leaves of advertisements for other books; top edge gilt. No dust jacket. Illustrations in colour and a sketch map of Kashmir.

The book is in poor condition. The binding is generally sound though the back joint is split and there is cracking along the gutters of the endpapers. The spine is faded and worn, and there is slight wear to the corners of the covers. Page end foxing and some tanning. Some tanning, foxing, and marks internally, and a large label appears to have been removed from the front paste-down endpaper. Of the 70 illustrations listed (pages xiii-xv), 3 (7,38, and 59) are missing.

Lieutenant Colonel Sir Francis Edward Younghusband, KCSI KCIE (1863 – 1942) was a British Army officer, explorer, and spiritual writer. He is remembered for his travels in the Far East and Central Asia; especially the 1904 British expedition to Tibet, led by him, and for his writings on Asia and foreign policy. Younghusband held positions including British commissioner to Tibet and President of the Royal Geographical Society.
Younghusband’s book, along with the illustrations by Major Molyneux, paints a picture of Kashmir as it was just over 100 years ago. Kashmir is widely regarded as the world's most militarized zone — the region has witnessed three major wars between India and Pakistan, another limited war between India and China, numerous border skirmishes, high mountainous warfare, an ongoing insurgency, a mass Hindu exodus, and internal civilian unrest.
