Detailed Product Description

London, Mount Everest Foundation, Royal Geographical Society, Harper Collins, 2003, UK edition, 3rd printing. 256 pp, 200+ photos, maps. Large pictorial hardcover without dust jacket. The corners of the book are bumped, probably from mailing. A rare edition in the USA. Near Fine. 

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

This is the official 50th anniversary book of Everest, written a member of the first ascent team. He questions why another Everest book is needed, and then shows that a lively, well researched and profusely illustrated book can certainly add to what we know.

With unique access to the living members who shared unpublished anecdotes, and the photo archives of the Royal Geographical Society, Mount Everest Foundation plus private collections, this is an essential book to read and savor for Everest enthusiasts. I especially enjoyed Band's dry wit.
