These 4607 entries are all relating to books on the Himalayas, together with Tibet and Central Asia, the range east to Yunnan and Upper Burma and to the west to the Karakoram, the Hindu Kush, the Tien Shan and the Pamirs.  Even though this edition ends in year 1984, it does include all the classic books of early exploration of the Himalaya and Karakoram and Tibet.
 
SIGNED/INSCRIBED on front end paper, "Mr. Louis Baume, With my best wishes, Yoshimi Yakushi Jan. 1984."

Louis Baume was one of the great mountaineering booksellers of the twentieth century, based in the UK. He authored Sivalaya, a terrific reference book for books and climbs of the 8000 meter peaks. Louis Baume and Yakushi had a correspondence, with Baume sending two letters and lists of books and translations that were not included with the first edition of this book. There are carbon copies of these letters. Yakushi wrote a letter to Baume in 1992, and that original and SIGNED aerogram is also included with this book.
