Detailed Product Description
The American Alpine Journal. A complete run of 91 volumes, 20,000+ pages, color & 100s of b/w photos & maps, overall condition Fine  - New, with Indexes. Most are Fine.

This is a rare and unusual full set of the American Alpine Journal 1929-2017. It was the personal set of Bob Bates, former President of the AAC, and member of the 1938 and 1953 K2 Expeditions.

Under the editorship of H. Adams Carter, David Robertson, Christian Beckwith, John Harlin, Dougald MacDonald, and others for the last eighty-nine years this has become the Journal of Record for important climbs in the Himalaya, Alaska, Antarctica, Baffin Island, plus of course the USA and South America. A complete mountaineering library needs these journals as most climbs are never mentioned in books, and the only reference to even major peaks is often only in Journals. For many years, and even today, expeditions to remote regions that had no guidebooks start their planning with the AAJ.

A full set of the premier Mountaineering Journal in the world! 1929-2017

Robert Bates had this set bound in a handsome red cloth, similar to the cover on his 1938 book Five Miles High. Issues 1929 to 1993 are bound in this red cloth (hardcovers), and are all in Fine to New condition. He had one to four issues bound together so each book is about two inches thick. The issues after 1994 are in their original paper wrappers as issued by the club. There are no bookplates or writing in the volumes. There are bit of ephemera tucked in the pages,  including a typed note dated 10/15/37 signed by Roy Thorington to Bob Bates offering him some duplicate books for the AAC that were then for sale.

These 91 volumes are a tremendous resource complete with expedition accounts from around the world, club activities, book reviews, and much more! This set will take up six feet of shelf space and weighs over 100 pounds.

We will charge postage for 91 books, both domestic or international, on this set, as it weighs over 150 pounds. As of 2019 it costs about $150 USA Domestic Media Rate to anyplace with an American Zip Code.
