Detailed Product Description
London, J.M. Dent, 1940, 1st edition. 213 pp, b/w photos. Green cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Near Fine.

Irving has selected ten mountains 'with some difficulty'. He had to restrict the number of Alpine peaks to two (Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn) and had to leave out some Himalayan peaks such as Nanda Devi. At the time of writing of course, Everest had not yet been conquered; there is a description of the attempts to that date, as there are with all the peaks mentioned. The chosen mountains are Snowdon, Ben Nevis, Mount Cook, the Matterhorn, Ushba, Mont Blanc, Mount Logan, Nanga Parbat, Kangchenjunga and Mount Everest.
