Adventure Sport and Travel on the Tibetan Steppes, Fergusson, W. N.
15 Fergusson, W. N. Adventure Sport and Travel on the Tibetan Steppes
London Constable and Company Limited 1911 1911 First Edition Half Morocco Very Good Large 8vo. 
343pp. 76 photographs. In the words of W. N. Fergusson, this book is mainly an account of two journeys taken through China and Tibet by the late Lieutenant Brooke. Mr. Brooke started on his first journey from Shanghai on August 1, 1906, and after crossing Tibet, returned to Shanghai in October 1907. He left Shanghai on his second journey in December, 1907, and travelled in Western Sechuan and Eastern Tibet until December 24, 1908, when he was murdered in the Independent Lolo Land. On the second of these two expeditions, Lt Brooke was accompanied by Mr C. H. Meares; and when that journey came to its untimely end, Mr Meares returned to England and wrote some articles on the country they had been travelling through. These generated considerable interest and Mr Meares was urged to make a more permanent record of the journey, but as he was already enlisted by Captain Scott for the Antarctic Expedition, the task fell to Fergusson. He was entrusted with Brooke's diary and photographs taken by him on his journeys and Fergusson here unites his own knowledge of the remote Tibetan and western and southern Se-chuan [sic] (Lololand) region, never previously visited by white people, with that of Mr Meares and Lt Brooke. Recent green half morocco with smart gilt-stamped, banded spine and green cloth boards. First few endpapers are new. Original free endpaper before half title page bears a signed dedication from, perhaps, Mr Brooke's mother to 'Ada McLeod with love from Mrs. Brooke 1911'. Some waterstaining to front endpapers, frontis. and title and some damp marking to bottom corner of pages scattered through the book, but very little damage to the two fold-out maps of western and southern Sechuan
