    Karamisheff's Book on Mongolia and Western China in the Scarce Original Dust Jacket

    W. Karamisheff. Mongolia and Western China. Social and Economic Study. Tientsin: Librarie Fran├žaise, 1925. First edition, first printing. Octavo. xxvii, 401 pages. With three folding maps. Publisher's full light brown cloth, front board and spine stamped in dark brown, in the rare original dust jacket. Jacket spine toned and chipped, creased tears to front panel with small tape repairs to verso, some edgewear and toning, cloth spine lightly dull, minor rubbing to binding, some foxing in text (especially on last few leaves). Bookseller's ticket on rear pastedown. Not an ex-library copy (which is quite often the case for this book - when you can find it). Still, a very good copy in the rare dust jacket.
