Detailed Product Description
London, 1927, 1st UK edition. 302 pp, 26 b/w illustrations. Very scarce. The book is a little scuffed, back internal hinge is cracked and there's some foxing on page edges, but spine's not faded and internally it's very clean. Overall a nice copy. Very Good +.

Account of the 1921, 1922 and 1924 Everest expeditions by the photographer on 2 of those expeditions. This book is the first stand alone volume to give the full story of the three 1920s Everest Expeditions expeditions. It covers the achievements and tragedies involved in the approach to the summit, culminating in the loss of George Leigh-Mallory and Andrew Irvine.
 
Mallory's last message from the highest camp was addressed to Noel, instructing him where to look for his party on the morning of the last climb with his camera. In the event, the view from Noel's position, on the North Col at 24,000 feet, was obscured by cloud. Noel held an unshakeable, almost mystical, belief that Mallory and Irvine reached the summit.
