SIR EDMUND HILLARY SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH 8X10 KARSH 1960

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.

We are offering two different portraits of Edmund Hillary. This is the better known photo and was taken in 1960, shortly after his climb of Everest. He is wearing an Anorak, and the lighting on his craggy face and tousled hair perfectly befits one of the most respected explorers of the 20th century. The original was made by one of the greatest portrait photographers of all time, Yuosuf Karsh of Canada.

Edmund Hillary signed this photo for us about 25 years ago in Los Angeles during a fund raising event for the American Himalayan Foundation, to which we had contributed. The print is signed in either blue or black ink, or black marker.

A note on Postage: 

If you are ordering just a Hillary photo (or several) to a USA address, we will ship it by Priority Mail for $7.  If ordering with other items, it is just 50 cents extra.

If order just a photo (or several) to a Canadian or Foreign Address, we will charge $25.  This is because the USA has very high international rates, and to protect the photo we have to add stiffeners that add weight. If you order a photo with other items, we can usually send it at what the website adds for one additional item, usually under $10.
