Publication Date: 1962
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: 1st Edition
FIRST UK EDITION. 62 printed pages of colour printed cartoons (evenly toned in margins). Pictorial blue printed endpapers. 23 x 30.5 cm. Original printed colour paper-covered boards (some marks, and wear, corners rubbed), with original red paper spine (slightly faded, two closed tears mid-way down, very slightly worn at hinges, head and tail). Following The Red Sea Sharks (1958) and its large number of characters, Tintin in Tibet differs from other stories in the series in that it features only a few familiar characters and is also Hergé's only adventure not to pit Tintin against an antagonist. Themes in Hergé's story include extrasensory perception, the mysticism of Tibetan Buddhism, and friendship. Translated into 32 languages, Tintin in Tibet was widely acclaimed by critics and is generally considered to be Hergé's finest work and the author's personal favourite; it has also been praised by the Dalai Lama, who awarded it the Light of Truth Award. Uncommon Tintin first edition in very good condition overall. Seller Inventory # 5240
