Detailed Product Description
Zurich, 1946. 254 pp, 40 b/w photos. In German. Produced from 1946-1969 by the Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research. Brown cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket, profusely illustrated with photos, maps, sketches. Near Fine condition.

This first issue of Mountain World has 36 articles on Swiss climbs in the Alps, with both pre-war, during the war and and post-war climbs. The Himalaya had not yet opened up, so this issue, only a year after the war ended, has articles only on the Alps, with one on a pre-war climb in the Caucasus.

MOUNTAIN WORLD and BERGE DER WELT and MONTAGNE DU MONDE was published from 1946 to 1969 in German and French but not in English until 1953 to 1969.

MOUNTAIN WORLD was published from 1953 to 1969 in English in the USA and UK. There is no difference between the USA and UK editions.

MOUNTAIN WORLD from 1946 to 1952 was published in hardcover and paperback in German and French. The English language editions 1953 to 1969 were published only in hardcover with a dust jacket.
