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

Well done photo history of mountaineering from its earliest beginnings, to the Alpine Golden Age of the Alps and the Himalayas.

From the dust jacket: "...(the book) unfolds the spellbinding two-hundred-year drama of mountaineering. Here is the story of how a gallant company of very different men and women -dukes, cowherds, biologists, literary critics, economists, artists, prospectors and plumbers - related to the mountains they climbed, how they met difficulties. Francis Keenlyside's authoritative text frames and introduces the accounts of the pioneers themselves, who speak in their own words, from their own time.

Illustrating this inspiring record of epic climbs is a lavish selections of paintings, drawings, engravings and portraits, as well as many glamorous modern photographs in black and white and colour, selected to show the range of international mountaineering."
