Detailed Product Description
In our warehouse we just found a few more copies of this special edition of Annapurna, SIGNED AND DATED by Maurice Herzog!  We believe these are some of the few copies he has ever inscribed this way. He signed these for us about 2006, in his home in Paris.
 
Some collectors favor this edition as it appeared a year before the USA edition. It seems to be scarcer than the USA edition, as by the time of the USA edition (1953) the publishers knew they had a bestseller on their hands (Probably the best selling mountaineering book of all time, 12-15 million copies world wide. Into Thin Air sold under 5 million worldwide, I would guess.)
 
London, 1952, 1st UK edition. 288 pp, photos, maps. Although 15,000,000 copies of Annapurna may have been printed, first editions are fairly scarce; about one out of twenty is a first (the UK edition says 'First printed 1952' on the copyright page while reprints all say more; as in the USA most UK copies are not first editions) and even fewer still have their dust jackets. We have a few copies that are very handsome with clean, although not perfect, dust jackets. The DJ may have some small chips or closed tears, but no major pieces missing. (The UK edition was a year earlier than the US, although many people prefer the US as it is 1/2' taller, and thicker, has a nicer dust jacket, and is the version we all grew up with). DJ, Near Fine.
 
SIGNED by Maurice Herzog AND DATED 3RD OF JUNE 1950, THE DAY HERZOG CLIMBED THE PEAK. COLLECTORS SOMETIMES ASK US TO HAVE THE AUTHOR ADD THE DATE HE CLIMBED A PEAK TO THE SIGNATURE, AND HERZOG OBLIGED US FOR A FEW COPIES!

The UK edition also has a different title on the title page: ANNAPURNA CONQUEST OF THE FIRST 8000-METRE PEAK [26,493 feet], a different photo on the dust jacket, and a different subtitle on the dust jacket: 'The First 8,000 metre Peak (26,493 feet)'
