Detailed Product Description
London, 1908, 1st edition. 444 pp, 170 b/w illustrations, 2 maps. Front cover bright, spine lettering dull but spine is not faded, overall a Near Fine copy of a scarce book. No foxing, the only internal writing is the name of the former owner, Geoff Milburn, noted English climber and author, and subtle embossed (blind stamp) stamp of the Bradford Library throughout.

I believe we sold this copy to Geoff Milburn from one of our early catalogs in the 1980s, and bought it back from him 7 years ago.

With their guide Matthias Zurbriggen the Workmans explored the Chogo-Lungma Glacier, the Nushik La and Hoh Lumba Glacier. Account of the Workmans' exploration in Baltistan during 1902 and 1903. They ascended Mt. Chogo and Mt. Lungma, and Pioneer Peak during 1902 and 1903. In 1902 they were accompanied by Mattias Zurbriggen and in 1903 by Joseph Petigax. Much new ground was also covered including exploration of the Alchori, Hoh Lumba and Sosbon Glaciers.

Fanny Bullock Workman (January 8, 1859 - January 22, 1925) was an American geographer, cartographer, explorer, and mountaineer, notably in the Eastern Himalayas (Karakoram). She was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and usually travelled in conjunction with her husband Dr. William Hunter Workman. She was one of the claimants, in the first decade of the 1900's, of the women's altitude record, vigorously defending her claim against that of Annie Peck. Her claim was based on an ascent of Pinnacle Peak, a subsidiary peak in the Nun Kun massif of the western Himalaya. She is the co-author, with William Hunter Workman, of five mountaineering books, and several cycling books.
