Evidence

"My instinct first led me to Dharmsala [sic], for many years the home of my uncle Robert Shaw who [...] was the first Englishman to push his way way right through the Himalayas to the plains of Turkestan beyond. Here [in his house] I found [...] books [...] and maps and old manuscripts. I was among the relics of an explorer,at the very house in which he had planned his explorations[...]. I pored over the old books and maps, and talked for hours with the old servants, till the spirit of exploration gradually entered my soul, and I rushed off on a preliminary tour on foot in the direction of Tibet, and planned a great journey into that country for the following year."

Notes
Robert Shaw (1839-1879) was an orientalist and linguist as well as a government servant and explorer. While the nature of the books found in his house and read or 'pored over' by his nephew Younghusband are unknown, the evidence of reading experience points to works of travel, exploration and possibly Shaws own works on Central Asian culture and languages, as well as his 'Visit to High Tartary, Yarkand and Kashgar' (1871). Shaw was also known to have taken a translation of Herodotus' 'History' to Kashgar.
