First released in 1932.
As good as an intensive advent, this variation includes notes to all 4 books, a bibliographical index, a normal index and an index of Tibetan phrases. The creation is especially precious in that it units the significance of Desideri's project within the basic context of the Jesuit Missions to Tibet.
In Desideri's account we obtain the 1st actual normal description of Tibet: from the wildlife to the sociological and anthropological elements of the folk and a whole exposition of Lamaism. His is the one whole reconstruction that we own of the Tibetan faith, based completely on canonical texts. And all of this greater than a century ahead of Europeans had any wisdom of the Tibetan language.
