1988 Huc and Gabet: Travels in Tartary Thibet and China 1844-1846
What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Publishers' Original Binding
This is a 1988 reprint of the original volume that was published first in Paris in 1850.
Abbe Huc was a French Catholic priest and traveller and became famous for his accounts of unknown lands, such as Tibet, Tartary or modern day Mongolia, and China.
Both Gabet and Huc were French Catholic Lazarite missionaries active in Northern China and Mongolia and they travelled to Tibet together in 1844 and these volumes, in translation, depict their journeys.
In the publisher's original full calf binding. Externally, very smart. There is some light fading to the boards and spine. Internally, firmly bound with bright clean pages.
