Book Description

In 1936, the British Government sent a mission to Lhasa, Tibet, under Mr. B. J. Gould. Spencer Chapman went as his private secretary. They remained in Lhasa until 17th February 1937, and those months are described vividly here. Together with his photographs, the account casts a fascinating light on Tibet.
