    Karl Alexander von Hügel (Author), T. B. Jervis (Translator)
Written by Austrian baron Karl Alexander Anselm von Hü:gel (1795–:1870), this travelogue was one of the first western books published on the Kashmir region. Von Hü:gel, who worked as a soldier, diplomat, botanist, explorer and ethnologist at various stages in his life, embarked on a trip to India in the 1830s as part of an extensive world tour. His account of his time in Kashmir and the Punjab was first published in German as a four-volume edition from 1840. He aimed to 'lift the veil' on Kashmir in an attempt to resolve the contentious reputation among Europeans of this unfamiliar region, and the book serves as a thorough guide to its history, geography, climate, culture and politics. This English translation and abridgement was prepared by Thomas Best Jervis (1796–:1857) and published in 1845. Also included in this reissue is a biography that the author's son, Anatole von Hü:gel, privately published in 1903.
