Detailed Product Description
Switzerland, 1974, 1st edition. 235 pp, 48 photographs - 20 partly colored, 3 panoramas and 8 color maps, one of which is multiply folded in back of book. In German. Large format Hardcover, pictorial cover, probably no Dust Jacket issued, Fine condition.

This is a heavy large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

The Swiss cartographer Eduard Imhof (1895-1986), together with the Swiss geologist Arnold Heim (182-1965), researched eastern Tibet in the 1930s. Particularly impressive is Imhof's chapter In Tibetan Paradises. His book presents the evaluation of diaries, sketches, watercolors and photos. The area traveled by Imhof and Heim in western China, on the Tibetan border, is one of the most inaccessible, wildest and least-known mountain regions of the world.

It was 1929 when China's highest mountain
, the 7587 m high Minya Konka (Minya Gongkar), was discovered. Heim and Arnold mapped the summit region and determined its height. In 1932, participants of a US expedition reached the summit for the first time (T. Moore and R. Burdsall). Book contains a detailed bibliography. Watercolors, sketches and photos by Imhof.
