Detailed Product Description
Pasadena CA, 2019, 1st edition. 178 pp, color and b/2 photos. Larger (8'' x 10'' tall) hardcover, with a fine linen binding, and an inset on the front cover of a reproduction of Glen Dawson's personal bookplate. The rear cover has a photo of Glen rock climbing, in sneakers and manila rope. There is a satin ribbon bookmark bound in. The book was published as a fine press book, in the California style. New condition. Limited edition, one of 1000 copies (not numbered.)

Glen Dawson with his brother Muir, son Michael and father Ernest, were the proprietors of Dawson's Bookshop in Los Angeles. Dawsons was one of the leading bookshops that specialized in mountaineering books.  When I moved to California in 1972 I drove straight to their bookshop to see the legendary bookshop, even before I had a job or place to live.

Glen was also an accomplished rock climber. He put up over 40 first ascents in the Sierra, and was often on a rope with such well known names as Jules Eichorn and Norman Clyde. He was on the legendary first ascents of Mt Whitney's East Face in 1931 with the above names plus Robert Underhill, and the East Buttress in 1937.
