Detailed Product Description
LIFE MAGAZINE JULY 1, 1957. The first account in English of the successful Swiss Everest expedition in 1956 that made the 2nd and 3rd ascents of Everest, and the first ascent of Lhotse. The article mentions that the book THE EVEREST LHOTSE ADVENTURE by team leader Albert Eggler was due out soon.

The thrust of the article is that this expedition placed two teams on the summit, and give short shrift to Lhotse. Now the emphasis is that they made the second ascent, nobody yet knew how often it could be climbed as most expeditions had been failures. And doing the first ascent of another 8000 meter peak is not just throw in. The history of climbing is mostly the history of its first ascents. The fourteen 8000 meter peaks only had 14 first ascents between them all.

At the time Life was one of the largest circulation magazines in America, and had an influence on the public as great as the TV show 60 Minutes or the Internet has today. It was entertainment and news, with great photos, and everybody read it. The article covers the climb only.
 
Many of the later iconic photos from the climb are included in the issue. Both color and b/w photos are included. The entire issue is present. The article is 6 pages long with 9 photos, 6 are in color. Two are full page.

The magazine is in Very Good condition.

Billy Graham is on the cover. Imagine, on the cover of Life in 1957, and he died just 2 years ago.
