Postage Rates Increase
We have been able to hold postage rates as they were for Domestic Media Mail. Domestic Priority Mail went up a little.
International Mail Airmail went up a lot, to $20 for the first book, $10 each additional. However, in many cases we can reduce that. For instance one or two maps, guidebooks or DVDs can be as low as $10 or $15. And 6-8 books, even oversize, may be only $60 in the USA's flat rate postal box. Heavy or large-format books may be charged more.
Some books that are labelled Large Format may cost a little extra to ship. If you need the exact amount, please E-Mail us or phone us.
If you want to know the postage charge beforehand, and if we can lower it or have to raise it, please E-Mail us with what you want to buy and we can quote a postage price before shipping.
HOW AUTHENTIC ARE THE SIGNATURES IN THE
BOOKS AND ICE AXES WE OFFER?
"How can we prove that the signatures in our Books and Ice Axes are real?"
Here is the evidence, the culprits, caught with PEN IN HAND!
The photos were all taken by Michael Chessler or an assistant.
Some of these great climbers have passed away, or are unable to sign books anymore.
Babu Chirri Sherpa, who had the record for ten Everest ascents, and fastest climb from Bascamp to Summit, under 17 hours. Died in 2001.
Hot Henry Barber.
Chris Bonington, in Gary Neptune's front yard, with Mike Chessler
The Austro-Hungarian Empire. (My wife Heinke Forfota is Hungarian, and Kurt Diemberger is Austrian. They love to chat in German.)
Heinrich Harrer, another Austrian who also liked to chat with Heinke in German!
Jamling Tenzing, showing me his father's Porter Book. The book is signed by Tilman, Shipton, Ruttledge, Lambert, Denman, etc. Tenzing didn't get it signed by the Brits in 1953, as even though he was the Sirdar, he was also a full team member.
Goran Kropp. On his one and only book tour.
Royal Robbins and Tom Frost
Brad and Barbara Washburn, Roger Bilham, 2 Nepali Ministers
Jim Whittaker, with Mike Chessler

Reinhold Messner in our bookshop.
Ed Hillary, in our bookshop. What a gentleman he was.
Fred Beckey, like Pete Schoening, is always happy to sign anything.
Jon Krakauer in our bookshop (Jon brings his own pens).
Maurice Herzog. See how he grips a pen with no fingers!
His real handwritng was actually excellent and readable!
