Detailed Product Description
Berlin, Emergency Community of German Science, 1929, 1st edition. 196 pp, b/w photos and illustrations, colored foldout map. In German. Pictorial hardcover with some foxing to cover, interior is fine. Near Fine condition.

In 1928, the Asian researcher W. R. Rickmers (1873-1965) led a German-Russian expedition to the Alai-Pamir area (in present-day Tajikistan); the scientific results (glacier research and cartography) were synonymous with the climber's successes: ascent of the Pik Kauffmann (later named Pik Lenin, 7134 m) in Trans-Alai by Allwein, Schneider and Vienna.

Book contains the preliminary reports of the participants.
Contents:
  • H. V. Ficker: Prehistory, tasks and composition of the expedition
  • W. R. Rickmers: Organization and course of the expedition
  • R. Finsterwalder: The topographical works
  • L. Nöth: The geological works
  • WF Reinig: The zoological works
  • W. Lentz: Report on linguistic and ethnographic works
  • Ph. Borchers and K. Wien: Works of the German mountaineering group
  • R. Finsterwalder: Notes on the picture and card supplements
The Pamir-Alay is a mountain system in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, part of the Pamir Mountains. It stretches between the valleys of the rivers Syr Darya to its north and Vakhsh to its south. Its highest summit is Pik Skalisty, 5621 m, in the Turkestan Range.
