Detailed Product Description
A vintage manuscript relic of 1960s. 

Mountaineering Around Montreal is a handmade softcover guidebook, published in 
1964, a magic year in climbing books: Roper's Yosemite Red Guide, Gran's Gunks Guide, Bonatti's On The Heights, China's Shishapangma Expedition, Miller's North Cascades, Sayre's Four Against Everest, and Ullman's Americans on Everest!  

Trivia quiz: What was the magic year in Hollywood Movies? * See below

Montreal Quebec Canada, The Montreal Section, Alpine Club of Canada; Club de Montaigne Canadien, 1964, 1st edition. 35 pp,  including a fold-out map of Chico slab routes (Val David PQ). Many ills, route diagrams. 

The first guidebook for rock climbing in Quebec Canada. 5 1/2'' x 8 1/2'' softcover, perfect bound poorly, glued on the spine like how a note pad is made. The glue has split so the book is in two pieces. Rather than mess with it, I will let the new owner decide how to fix it. Two staples would do it. Very Good condition.  

This book is very rare, we have listed it before, but were unable to locate it in our disorder. Now it's up there with all the major collectibles. The cover of this book has not printing, but a handwritten notation ''Annotated Copy,'' but we can find no handwritten comments in the book. 

There is a copy listed for sale on the internet from a Canadian bookseller. For $655!
