Views of Medieval Bhutan
Michael Aris
In 1783 Warren Hastings sent a second embassy to Tibet and to the isolated Buddhist state which survives today as the Kingdom of Bhutan. Samuel Davis, a young lieutenant in the Bengal Army, accompanied the mission as draftsman and surveyor. Although he was denied access to Tibet, David spent several months in Bhutan, and fifty-nine of his original drawings of that country have recently been traced by Michael Aris to collections in India, the United States and England. The finest of these hitherto unpublished views form the main content of this book.
