Detailed Product Description
New York, 1957, 1st edition. 128 pp, photos. Concise introduction to rock climbing, mountaineering, and its history. Hardcover, slightly chipped DJ, Near Fine.
 
Both copies INSCRIBED TO OUR BOOKSHOP AND SIGNED by George Alan Smith.

Copy 1: "To Michael Chessler Mountain Book Dealer Extraordinaire! George Alan Smith"
Copy 2: "For Michael & Heinke Excelsior! George Alan Smith"

Smith Signed these copies for us in the mid 1980s when we visited him at his home in Saugerties NY, not far from the Gunks.

"The purpose of this book," writes George Alan Smith, "is to inculcate some of the fundamental principles of mountaineering, to convey some sense of the enormous satisfactions of the sport into the minds and hearts of those who aspire to the heights. The ascent from the valley to the ramparts o the mountain, the struggle up rock-ribbed regions of snow and ice to the summit, the ensuing return to the valley, an take on the stature of something more than mere sport. It can become a way of life." 

Introduction by James Ramsey Ullman.
