Hunter Books
"JL28933" Blades, East & Blades, London, n.d. (1910,) first edition, 87 pages, 4to, illustrated with 25 full page reproductions of watercolor paintings in vivid color by the author, double page map of Baltistan and Little Tibet. Czech wrote ""One of the handful of Edwardian-era women who embarked on her own hunting expeditions, Lady Jenkins departed from Srinagar, traveled through Leh and Miroo and into the high country of Changchenmo. Her native shikari thought she looked like a 'town lady', horribly weak and thin,' but she steadfastly continued her journey bagging Tibetan gazelle, Ovis Ammon, and burhel. She and her guides suffered from altitude sickness, lack of food, and severe weather. The book has been rebound with the original title and photgraph (somewhat faded) of Lady Jenkins with her trophies laid on. There is one small worm hole at the top of a few of the first pages and there is minor foxing on the edges of some pages but the magnificent color plates are completely clean and intact. Scarce. A Very Good Plus copy.  ID#: 4240
