White took the photographs in this album during the last 'Tibet Mission', a punitive move by the British to force the Tibetans to co-operate on a mapping survey.
The majority of images in this album are the same as those in the two volume publication Tibet and Lhasa by Johnston and Hoffmann, Calcutta, 1907-08. This album has titles in ink on mounts where the published volumes have letterpress descriptions by C.B. Baylay on interfacing pages (see Sotheby's New York, 10 and 11 May, 1983, lot 531). A single volume titled Tibet with 72 plates sold at Sotheby's London 13 May, lot 20. It would appear that some variation of plates occured even where volumes were issued with the same total number of photographs.
