Detailed Product Description

Londonor New York, 1954, 1st UK or US edition. 135 pp. 32 b/w plates, color frontis, maps. Small blue cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be chipped. Book is fine. Near Fine.

First ascent of Alpamayo. An account of the Franco-Belgian Expedition to the Cordillera Blanca in the High Andes - an exciting and unusual story of this team's 1951 conquest of Nevado Alpamayo, the most beautiful glacier massif in the tropics, that included two women - Claude Kogan and Nicole Leininger, and which "had the good fortune to be one of the few of its kind completely happy and free from crises." In the second part of the book, Ms. Leininger provides "a woman's viewpoint on mountaineering in a country which is the cradle of the Inca civilization."
