New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1936. Hardcover. Slight spotting to boards. Endpapers browned. Previous owner's name to first blank page and with newspaper articles tipped-in to first few pages. Blindstamped to front free endpaper, the title page, and the verso of the frontispiece; Tipped-in newspaper articles about the author. Enlisted to mark out motor routes between central China and the remote province of Sinkiang, author Hedin finds himself in the midst of an effort to oust General Ma (the 'Big Horse' of the title) who himself was recruited to oust a previous general, Chin. Caught between the two Chinese factions and the White Russian Cossacks makes for an interesting book, to say the least ; B&W Photographs; 8vo; 246 pages. Very Good.
