Detailed Product Description
London, 2013, 2nd updated UK edition. 128 pp, 100+ color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine

This is the revised version of Everest 50 Years of Struggle to Reach the Top of the World, updated to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest. 

This is a large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.
 
This dramatically illustrated album charts the world's fascination with Everest, the Holy Grail of the mountaineering world, from its discovery by Western eyes in the 19th century. It chronicles early expeditions, the tragic disappearance of Mallory and Irving in 1924, and the euphoria of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's successful summit, announced on Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation Day in 1953.
 
Here too are the riddle of the Abominable Snowman, the astonishing discovery of Mallory's body during a 1999 expedition, and more recent triumphs and tragedies on the mountain. There are archival or modern photographs on nearly every page, including several double-page panoramas of breathtaking views.
