Detailed Product Description

New York, 1956, 1st edition. 273 pp, 24 plates. Blue cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Near Fine condition. 

Inscribed on the free FEP by American nephrologist and high altitude physiologist Drummond Rennie: "Given to me by Charlie Houston, January, 1971."

The exciting story of the first ascent of K2 by an Italian team in 1954. From the dust jacket: 'From conception to thrilling climax, each stage of the adventure is vividly described--economic and political difficulties to be overcome, topographical and meteorological surveys, careful study and choice of equipment, and selection and training of the climbing party. The author, a professor of geology in Italy, has led other climbing expeditions. A meticulous account of a climb by the expedition leader, who is part scientist, part general, part poet and part mountain climber.'
