Vanished kingdoms

Vanished kingdoms




China, Tibet, Mongolië, oude fotografie

CABOT,M.H., Vanished kingdoms. A woman explorer in Tibet, China & Mongolia 1921-1925. Hardback, oblong.190 pag. met veel zwart-wit foto's en een paar in kleur.

Vanished Kingdoms is the story of Janet Elliott Wulsin who explored together with her husband remote corners of Western China, Inner Mongolia, and northwestern Tibet. Wulsin's story went largely untold until, after her death in 1963, her daughter, Mabel Cabot, found her mother's private letters and diaries. Cabot spent the next four years conducting research in the Harvard University Library and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology to unravel her mother's fascinating story. 
They documented tribes people and sublime desert landscapes, and, most remarkably, were allowed to photograph the interior of several of the great Tibetan Buddhist lamaseries, including Choni, Kumbum and Labrang. Several dozen rare, hand-painted lantern slides survived and are reproduced here in color.
The photographs from the Wulsin Expedition, are now in the collection of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University

(see also: AlLONSO, M.E.ed. China's inner frontier Photographs of the Wulsin Expedition to Northwest China in 1923. Cambridge, 1979).
