Detailed Product Description
UK, 1992, 1st UK edition. 132 pp, photos. Aged 44 in 1838, Mme d'Angeville, (+ feather boa), aristocrat (father guillotined) climbed Mt Blanc with a flourish. This was not the first female ascent, but the first by A Lady. In 1809, an 18 year old Chamonix maid servant, Marie Paradis had already reached the summit, but she was not a 'lady.' Henriette's frank account, including an interview (true/haughty/just bitchy?) with Marie Paradis, has a preface by Dervla Murphy, who writes of Marie Paradis, ''But she hardly counted, having been dragged up the last several stages, in altitude-induced semi-coma, by her villager companions.''  Hardcover, DJ, Fine.
