Original light green boards with a darker green spine and double gilt lines separating them. Top edge gilt and gilt title on the unfaded spine. Inside clean and tight with no foxing or browning, and excellent mountain photography that makes you want to hop up and visit these now troubled lands. The author had an extended visit to his brother , who was an officer in the India Army. Very much a book of the Raj, extoling the virtues of British rule over the many tribes and cultures of India. But also a fine travel read to a beautiful mountain terrain. Now protected in a clear, mylar dust jacket.
