Detailed Product Description
SIGNED by Heinrich Harrer.

NAAR DE EEUWIGE SNEEUW VAN TROPISCH NEDERLAND: DE BESTIJGING VAN HET CARSTENSZGEBERGE IN NEDERLANDSCH NIEUW GUINEE. [ON THE PERPETUAL SNOW OF TROPICAL NETHERLANDS: THE ASCENT OF CARSTENZ PEAKS IN DUTCH NEW GUINEA].

Amsterdam, 1937, 1st edition. 286 pp, many b&w photos, color foldout map. In Dutch. This Dutch expedition attempted the ascent of New Guinea's highest peak, and climbed several peaks near Carstenz in 1936, but missed the highest peak. This expedition was the inspiration for Harrer's first ascent of Carstenz over twenty years later. Thick hardcover, Fine, light foxing. 

Account of the major scientific mountaineering expedition to the Carstensz Mtns of Irian Jaya (New Guinea) in 1936, led by Colijn. This was the first successful climbing trip to the peaks with three strong attempts on Carstensz Pyramid (Puncak Jayakesuma 4884m), 1st ascent of Ngga Pulu (4862m), and an ascent to just shy of the top of East Carstensz Top (Carstensz Timur ca 4800m). This is the major book on the Carstensz Mountains.

The book has lots of photos of the mountains when they still had big glaciers, and lots of photos of the colorful indigenous people prior to wide exposure to the outside world.
