SIGNED by Reinhold Messner

One of the most important climbs in mountaineering; the first ascent of Everest without oxygen. Up until this time it was believed that Everest could not be climbed, or that men could even survive at the summit, without the use of bottled oxygen. Peter Habeler and Reinhold Messner proved that it could be done, and set the new standard for Everest and 8000 meter peaks. 

Reinhold has been generously signing his books for us for almost 30 years. The photo below was taken in our bookshop in the 1990s. We often meet with him in New York, or other venue when he is in America for business or perhaps one of his sponsors.

SIGNED by Reinhold Messner on the title page.  

Reinhold Messner in our bookshop about  1990.

Michael Chessler discussing penmanship with the great Reinhold Messner.  We were both born 3 months apart in 1944. Who is older?

"The 1978 Austrian expedition … wanted to achieve the first Austrian ascent and at the same time (if possible) achieve the first ascent without the use of breathing apparatus. They succeeded in both objectives.
 
To climb Everest without oxygen must rank as one of the outstanding achievements in present day mountaineering and one cannot help admiring Messner (and Habeler) not only for the achievement itself but for the fact that they were stepping into the unknown and subjecting themselves to physiological and psychological problems which no one had faced before." - Mike Richardson, “Crags” No. 20, p. 34
