Title Results of a Scientific Mission to India and High Asia
Subtitle Undertaken Between the Years MDCCCLIV and MDCCCLVIII
Description The report of the expedition to India and the Highlands of Asia conducted by Hermann, Adolf and Roberts, three of the five Schlagintweit Brothers from Germany. In 1854, at the recommendation of Alexander von Humboldt, the three brothers were invited by the British East India Company to conduct a survey of the Deccan Plateau and the Himalayas. In 1857, they travelled towards the Karakoram and the Kunlun Mountains. In the same year, Hermann and Robert returned to Germany, but Adolf remained in Central Asia and continued exploring. Tragically, he was killed by the Amir of Kashgar on August 26 of the same year. Therefore, this volume was completed by Hermann and Robert. This work is considered rare and valuable. In particular, the sketches of people living in the mountains are considered exceptionally noteworthy.
