About the Book

Evariste-Régis Huc was born August Ist, 1813, at Toulouse. At the age of twenty-four he entered the Lazarist Order, and in 1839, soon after his ordination, he went out to China. There he spent several years at various missions studying Chinese and making numerous translations. In 1844 he and another missionary, Pére Gabet, were sent to explore the newly-created ‘apostolic Vicariat of Mongolia, and for the following two years they wandered through Tartary, Thibet, and China, making their way as far as the Forbidden City of Lhasa, where they lived for some time. Huc returned to Europe in 1852 and died at Paris, March 31st, 1860.

His Account of his journey, the famous Souvenirs d’un voyage dans la Tartarie, be Thibet, et la Chine pendant les anneés 1844-1846, was published at Paris in 1850. The English translation, by W. Hazlitt, was brought out the following year. In 1925 H, d’Ardenne de Tizac, prepared a new edition for modern readers. He has thus far edited only the first volume, and the present edition of the Hazlitt translation has been prepared in conformity with his version. The illustrations are taken from the woodcuts of the first English edition.
