EVEREST [50 YEARS ON TOP OF THE WORLD] George Band 2003 1st US ed Hardcover DJ Near Fine
By Band, George
Price: $29.95

Detailed Product Description

New York, Barnes & Noble, 2003, 1st US edition. 256 pp, 200+ color and b/w photos, maps.  Large format hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine.

This large format book will require additional postage for Priority or International Mail.

This is the official 50th anniversary book of Everest, written a member of the first ascent team. He questions why another Everest book is needed, and then shows that a lively, well researched and profusely illustrated book can certainly add to what we know.

With unique access to the living members who shared unpublished anecdotes, and the photo archives of the Royal Geographical Society, Mount Everest Foundation plus private collections, this is an essential book to read and savor for Everest enthusiasts. I especially enjoyed Band's dry wit.

The US edition of this book was published and distributed only in Barnes and Noble bookstores, and was therefore not as visible or available as it might have been. It was printed on the same plates as the UK edition and is otherwise identical.
