New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., 1933 278 pp. with 49 B&W plates. As Hedin states in his introduction, "this book should be more accurately called "Ch'ein-lung, the Son of Heaven," as it is principally a biography of the great Manchu Emperor who built the majority of the temples and pavilions in Jehol. "The historical events connected with Jehol have been built up from western sources, and from Chinese documents, scarcely any of which have been translated into western languages. In chapters lX -Xll fantasy has a place. if in the description of the flight of the Torgot, and the funeral cortege of the Tasi Lama across the whole of Eastern Asia, I seem to have overstepped the bounderies set by the meagre historical records, I have gone no further than my own experience of these districts justified." Sven Heden.Text is clean, tight and unmarked. With a bookplate and "with compliments, Sven Hedin" on first free page. Ochre cloth boards are clean and undamaged, darkened aloong spine.
