The first printing was issued in black cloth with gilt titles to the spine and a yellow and red dustwrapper, priced at 12/6. This later or remainder issue uses the sheets of the first edition in a cheaper binding and dustwrapper priced at 5s. The British explorer, botanist, and geographer Ronald Kaulback's account of his 1933 journey to Tibet, initially as part of the botanist Frank Kingdon Ward's expedition.
