Detailed Product Description
Belgium, 1993, 1st edition. 152 pp, color photos, mapped end papers. In German. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition. The 1992 first ascent of Everest by a Luxemberger and an attempt in 1991 from the north by a Belgian expedition. This book is scarce.

SIGNED on the half title page by Eugene Berger along with a hand-sketched climber on the summit of a mountain along with the summit date 1.10.92.

On 1 October 1992, Eugène Berger was at the top - 8,848 meters above sea level - the summit of Mount Everest. A dream come true for Eugène Berger as told in 152 pages. Many previously unpublished color photographs illustrate a performance that was unanimously recognized by the Luxembourg sports press and REVUE readers: Eugène Berger was honored as both the "Sportsman of the Year 1992" and "Readers Choice" Sports Year '92!

Ganz Oben is an exciting book for all ages, for mountain enthusiasts, sports enthusiasts, photographers and nature lovers.

Wikipedia:

Eugène Berger (born 4 December 1960 in Bettembourg) is a politician from Luxembourg. Berger studied to become a teacher, and worked in this profession from 1988 to 1994. In 1994, he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies for the Democratic Party. He was State Secretary of the Environment from 1999 to 2004.

On 1 October 1992, he became the first Luxembourger to climb Mount Everest, for which he won the title of Luxembourgian Sportsman of the Year.

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