Still, after over 90 years, Ancient Khotan is regarded by scholars as the most significant and indispensable publication on Khotan's unique culture, religion, ancient monuments, and it's conspicuous role in Central Asian history. It is also the account of Sir M. Aurel Stein's exploration and discoveries in this strategic ancient kingdom, situated on the Silk Road in Chinese Turkestan (Xinjiang province). Detailed accounts of the discoveries at the early Buddhist monastic cities of Rawak and Dandan-Uilik. Important Archaeological sites of Niya and Endere. Includes large folding color map of Khotan from original surveys. Sir Aurel Stein was perhaps the greatest explorer of the 20th Century. Ancient Khotan was his first major publication, and for which he was awarded the prestigious Explorer's Gold Medal by the Royal Geographical Society, London. The original 'Ancient Khotan' issued in 1907 has been out-of-print for over 80 years. Rare, even in antiquarian circles, the Oxford 1907 title commands a price in excess of £5,000. 645pp with 119 plates. With descriptive list of antiques by F.H. Andrews. 72 illustrations in-text, and appendices by L.D. Barnett and S.W. Bushell. Limited edition of 900 copies.
