Detailed Product Description
LIFE MAGAZINE SEPTEMBER 20, 1963. This was THE major magazine article about the American ascent of Everest in May 1963, other than the National Geographic coverage.
 
At the time the was one of the largest circulation magazines in America, and had an infulence on the public as great as the TV show 60 Minutes or Jay Leno has today. It was entertainment and news, with great photos, and everybody read it. The article covers the climb only, although the pictures show the tumult as they arrived in villages and Kathmandu on the way out.
 
 
Many of the later iconic photos from the climb are included in the issue. Both color and b/w photos are included. The entire issue is present.
 
The magazine is in Very Good condition. The cover is faded, else VG-Fine.
