Detailed Product Description

We were fortunate to have met with Sir Edmund Hillary many times in the 1990s and 2000s.  Being booksellers, we often asked him to autograph books by and about him. But we also brought along some other goodies.

For many years customers, and other dealers and sellers of collectibles,  have asked us if we ever get any Ed Hillary signed photographs. We always demurred, and had never sold any.

We are now offering two different portraits of Edmund Hillary. This lesser known formal photo was taken in the 1950s, shortly after his climb of Everest. He is wearing an herringbone tweed suit, and the lighting on his craggy face and tousled hair perfectly befits one of the most respected explorers of the 20th century. We searched the internet and are unable to find the original source or photographer, but he looks slightly younger than in the 1960 Karsh photo.

Edmund Hillary signed this photo for us about 30 years ago in Los Angeles during a fund raising event for the American Himalayan Foundation, to which we had contributed. The print is signed with a black fine tipped marker.  


Here Hillary is signing a $5 NZ note that has his image on it.

In the background wearing jeans is Michael Chessler.
