Detailed Product Description
Partis, Gallimard, 1961, French edition. 568 pp, 80 photos, 10 maps.  Lionel  Terray, one of the greatest climbers of the twentieth century, did first or notable ascents of Makalu, Fitzroy, Annapurna, Jannu, Eiger, Mt Huntington, Mt McKinley, etc. Rare original wrappers or paperback with DJ edition, pictorial cover, Fine. Some French books are done as wrappers, or nice paperbacks with a dust jacket, and they do not age as well as hardcovers. However, some good samaritan covered this book with clear and durable cellophane 50+ years ago, so the condition is really as New.

This copy is Signed and Inscribed by Lionel Terray to a Maurice Delanghe on the second FEP of the book. Inserted in the book is an review of the book from a French newspaper, and a menu from a dinner dated December 6, 1969.  I thought that dinner may have been when Terray signed the book, but Terray died in 1965.



Terray signed quite a few items but mostly they are in French. He did not speak English so he did not lecture and sign books in the USA or UK very often.  But he did visit the USA, as Nick Clinch told me a story about he and Terray sharing an old single chair ski lift, with Terray sitting on Clinch's lap.

This is the autobiography of the great French mountain climber and guide Lionel Terray. He is the man who made the second ascent of the Eiger north wall in 1947 with Louis Lachenal, and then returned to take part in a most dramatic rescue on the same mountain in 1957; who went to the aid of two climbers marooned in a blizzard on Mont Blanc after the other guides in the area had refused to make the attempt; who went with Maurice Herzog on the great French Himalayan expedition to Annapurna, and later climbed Makalu, Nilgiri and Jannu and many other summits. He also climbed in the Andes. He did the first ascent if Fitzroy, and in Alaska the first ascent of Huntington, later climbed by David Roberts and co.
