Egor Fedorovich Timlovski travelled China and Mongolia extensively in the early nineteenth century and was instrumental in the establishment of a Russian Embassy in Peking. This narrative of his travels was first published in Russian in 1824. This 1827 edition was translated by Julius von Klaproth, a close associate of the great explorer Alexander von Humboldt. He describes in detail the geography, resources and customs of the people of China, Mongolia and Turkestan. There is a fine folding route map, plan of Peking and another of the Russian embassy in Peking. Provenance: Leicester Free Library. Cordier BS 2473.
