Maillart, Ella K. Forbidden Journey. From Peking to Kashmir. London William Heinemann 1937
First edition pp.xvi, 312, 36 plates, 3 maps, 1 folding. Rubber stamped Colonial Edition on front end-paper. A very good copy in original cloth. Bookseller's blind stamp of K. Gai, Peshawar.

From the paucity of true first editions seen over the years we deduce that the so called Colonial Edition, identified only by a discrete rubber stamp on end-paper, was despatched before UK distribution.
