Detailed Product Description

London, 1937, 1st edition. 295 pp, 63 b/w plates, illustrations, 2 foldout maps. Royal 8vo. Large format navy cloth hardcover with rare dust jacket. Oddly, jacket has publisher information cut away on spine. Otherwise, one of the nicer dust jackets we've seen. Former owner's name on FEP. Near Fine overall.

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

The fifth attempt from the Tibetan side reached the North Col but was driven back by an early Monsoon. This 1936 expedition reached 7150 meters. 

Includes two large color folding maps at rear of the Northern face of Mount Everest and of the route from Darjeeling to Everest. Hugh Ruttledge's personal account of the second British Everest Expedition that he led - this time in 1936. His previous attempt was in 1933. The attempt was halted at 23,400 feet by an early monsoon.
