Description

Excerpt from The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine, Vol. 41: November, 1890, to April, 1891 A learned French missionary who for thirty years has been living on the Tibetan borderland, writing some years ago of Tibet, said: What is known of the great plateau which stretches out from the valley of the Tsang-po to the Kuen lun range? The Same may be asked of the form of government, the civil and military organization, the rights of ownership, the civil and religious condition of the people, their virtues and vices, their morals and their customs. Who can speak of the geology, the mineralogy, the mines of Tibet? What is the value of its commerce, both domestic and foreign?
