$75 THE FIRE OX AND OTHER YEARS - Sudyam Cutting - Collins, London, First UK edition, 1947, Hardback VG+ ,

THE FIRE OX AND OTHER YEARS - Sudyam Cutting - Collins, London, First UK edition, 1947, Hardback VG+ , numerous B&W illustrations and lovely painted portraits. An account of travels in Tibet, Nepal, Assam and other Far Eastern Lands. A wonderfully illustrated book on the travels of a rich American, mostly undertaken with his wife. Cutting was one of the very few Americans with official invitation to visit Lhasa, but also Kathmandu (where he stayed with the ambassador Eric Bailey), at that time perhaps even more difficult. But he even could visit Russian Turkestan, the Nagas in Assam or the Nakhi in Southeastern Tibet, as well as the Tibetan Kingdom Muli - $75.
