Abstract

MR. ROCKHILL is no stranger to the British public; his admirable work on Tibet—“The Land of the Lamas,” published in 1891—has been widely read, and his second great journey, described in the book now before us, earned for him the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society, the highest geographical prize in the world. The book, as now published, differs from “The Land of the Lamas” by being less a piece of literature for general reading than a compendious record of observations suited for serious students of Central Asia.

Diary of a Journey through Mongolia and Tibet in 1891 and 1892.

By William Woodville Rockhill. 8vo. Pp. xx. and 414. Illustrations. (Washington: published by the Smithsonian Institution, 1894.)
