An Account of Tibet: The Travels of Ippolito Desideri of by Filippo De Filippi PDF

By Filippo De Filippi

First released in 1932.
As good as an intensive advent, this variation includes notes to all 4 books, a bibliographical index, a basic index and an index of Tibetan phrases. The advent is very precious in that it units the significance of Desideri's project within the basic context of the Jesuit Missions to Tibet.
In Desideri's account we obtain the 1st actual basic description of Tibet: from the wildlife to the sociological and anthropological facets of the folk and a whole exposition of Lamaism. His is the one whole reconstruction that we own of the Tibetan faith, based solely on canonical texts. And all of this greater than a century ahead of Europeans had any wisdom of the Tibetan language.
