Detailed Product Description
New York, 1940, 1st edition. 265 pp, 16 plates. Meade was a leading figure in mountaineering in the early 20th century. He made three Kamet attempts from 1910-13. Hardcover, DJ, Very Good-Fine.

Charles Francis Meade (born 25 February 1881 - died 1975) was an English mountaineer and author.

Meade climbed extensively in the Alps and the Himalayas, often accompanied by his guide, Pierre Blanc (d. 1966). In particular, he made a number of early attempts on Kamet, camping overnight in 1913 at Meade’s Col, at a height of 7,138 metres. He was an original member of the Mount Everest Committee. Meade Nunatak, a hill in the Antarctic, is also named after him.


Meade also developed the Meade tent, a design which was extensively used by other climbers for a number of years and at the highest camp on the first ascent of Everest.
