Heinrich Harrer SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET Limited Editions Club LEC
New York: Limited Editions Club, 1993. 9.25" x 13", 260 pp. #5 of an edition of 300 numbered copies, signed by Harrer on the colophon. Translated by Richard Graves, with an Introduction by the Dalai Lama. Illustrated with six photogravures; map of Harrer's route laid in. Bound in coarse natural Buré silk, wrapped in a burgundy and yellow cotton sleeve, or "pi-chu", and encased by two carved magnolia boards. The only flaw is some sun fading to the straps that hold the carved boards around the books. In this classic of travel literature, Harrer, an accomplished Austrian mountaineer, recounts his escape from a World War II POW camp in India, his trek with one companion across the high Tibetan plateau, and the the subsequent years he spent living in Lhasa. A desirable Limited Editions Club title that is increasingly scarce in the marketplace. Condition Descriptions Defined: We grade our books and dust jackets using the traditional language of the antiquarian book trade. In brief: Fine is the highest grade and means essentially as new, without visible faults or defects; Near Fine means approaching fine, but with one or more very minor defects or faults, which will be noted; Very Good means the book shows some general (but not too offensive) signs of wear and use, which will be noted; Good means the book is complete and intact, but has more wear or some internal markings. Any ex-library book will be graded no higher than Good, even if it is otherwise a very nice copy. Again, all flaws will be noted. We rarely offer any books in Fair or Poor condition, but if we do, the reasons for the grade will be evident from the photo(s) and description. Please notify us in advance of any return.
