The Blind Road.

Edinburgh. William Blackwood & Sons. 1938. Stock ID #174702

Endpaper map, 442pp. Octavo, 20.5 x 14cm. One gathering beginning to split, occasional foxing, otherwise a very good copy.

Bethell's account of his travels in Tibet and Arunachal Pradesh, after having concluded that the "curries [and] chutnies" of India are too de rigeur for British audiences. A fascinating insight into one of many early 20th Century Western efforts to de-mystify the Indian-Tibetan borderlands following the establishment of the McMahon Line.
