Detailed Product Description




SIGNED by Reinhold Messner.

London or New York, 1974, 1st edition. 164 pp, ills. Thirty years ago Reinhold Messner set forth his philosophy in this, his first book. Chris Bonington says of him, 'What has given him the edge over everyone is creative imagination. There is a wall called impossible that the great mass of people in every field face. Then one person who's got kind of extra imaginative drive jumps that wall. That's Reinhold Messner.' Hardcover, DJ, Near Fine - Fine.

SIGNED by Reinhold Messner.

This is one of the scarcest of Messner's books in english. It is Messner's first book in English. It's a collection of Messner's difficult solo climbs interspersed with his commentary on style, technique, philosophy, training, etc. It winds up with a brief chapter on the 1970 Rupal Face Nanga Parbat expedition, mainly discussing the physical training in preparation for the expedition.

Messner's climbing record is phenomenal. He was the first person to climb the fourteen 'official' 8000m peaks: Shisha Pangma, Nanga Parbat, Everest, Kangchenjunga, Dhaulagiri, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Broad Peak, Hidden Peak, Gasherbrum 2, K2, Annapurna, Lhotse, and Manaslu.
 
He was the first person to make a completely solo climb of an 8000m peak (Nanga Parbat), the first person to make a completely solo ascent of Mt Everest, the first person (with Peter Habeler) to climb Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, first person (with Arved Fuchs) to traverse Antarctica without dogs or machines, first person to traverse Greenland diagonally from southeast to northwest. In 2000 he retraced Shackleton's route across South Georgia.
