Himalaya

New York: Brentanos, 1926

210 pages with 22 tipped-in colour plates with tissue guards and 76 halftone plates, including essays by writer Georgy Grebenshchikov, a critic of Ivan Narodniy, very important for understanding his work, as well as articles by Francis R Grant and Mary Zigrist, and "Banners of the East" by Nicholas Roerich; publishers brown gilt-lettered, decorated cloth cover, decorated endpapers
15.2 x 12 in (38 x 30.5 cm)

This is forty nine from a limited edition of five hundred copies.

The book has three small stamps of ‘Gertrude Kistler Memorial Library, Rosemont, PA’ - on bottom of title-page, p. 17 and p. 210 [last page] but no accession numbers, labels or any other marks.

Celebrated Russian painter, writer, archaeologist, philosopher and mystic Roerich settled with his family in the Kullu Valley in India in 1929. The mansion on the estate became the home to the Urusvati Himalayan Research Institute that the Roerichs founded in 1928. This opulent volume pulls together excerpts from a diary kept during his often treacherous travels through the Himalayas and reproductions of many of his best-known works including his "Banners of the East" series of nineteen paintings devoted to the world's greatest religious teachers including Buddha, Confucius, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed. Many of these pictures are now in the Roerich Museum in New York City.
