G. J. Younghusband

Younghushand, like his brother Francis, another spy and traveler to Tibet, was knighted and became a major-general in the army. He was seriously wounded in the First World War, after which he was appointed Keeper of the Jewel Tower in the Tower of London in 1917, holding the post until his death in 1944.

This intriguing text, of which hitherto only two copies are known still to exist, was first published in 1888, and is here reissued with an introduction by the noted historian David K. Wyatt.
