About This Item

New York: D. & J. Sadlier & Co, 1857. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Traces the history of Christianity in China from its earliest documented appearance with St. Thomas and the missionary rush sparked by the discovery of the Cape of Good Hope in 1488 to the Manchu-Tartar Dynasty in the sixteenth century. Abbe Huc, a French Catholic priest, Lazarite missionary, and traveler, became famous for his accounts of Qing-era China, Mongolia, and Tibet, which was largely unknown at the time. He and his companion Joseph Gabet were the first Europeans to reach Lhasa since Thomas Manning in 1812. 358 p. and 348 p. with publisher's ads. Octavo, two volumes. Ex-19th century library (Nevada City Free Public Library), with a bookplate to each rear pastedown, two small ink date stamps and a small label to each front endpaper, and a gilt-stamped accession number and label shadow to each spine. It appears a pocket was neatly removed from each pastedown. Both bindings are quite sound. The spines are sun faded, with some minor bumping to the corners and tips. Scarce.
