William Moorcroft was a veterinary surgeon to the Bengal army. He was particularly interested in improving the stud by importing Turcoman horses and to this end he wished to investigate the possibilities of trade across the Himalayas. In 1811 he was the first Westerner to cross the Himalayas. In the subsequent expedition reported here, he ventured into Ladakh where he spent several months. Having failed to get permission to enter Chinese Tartary he traveled to Kashmir where he made a thorough investigation pf the shawl industry and then subsequently Kabul and Bokhara where he "met with as much kindness from the king as could be expected from a selfish, narrow-minded bigot." He was accompanied by George Trebeck. Both Moorcroft and Trebeck died on the return journey from Bokhara but their papers reached India and were subsequently edited and published by Wilson in 1841. Printed Pages: 456.
