Detailed Product Description
LIFE MAGAZINE JULY 13 1953  Full issue

This has become one of the most sought after accounts of the first ascent of Everest, as it was one of the first articles to be written by Ed Hillary, and to use color photos.

Ed Hillary started his journey to fame with this article in Life Magazine, which at the time was one of the largest circulation magazines in America, and had an influence on the public as great as the TV show 60 Minutes or Ellen has today. It was entertainment and news, with great photos, and everybody read it.

The main article is written by Ed Hillary and he describes the ascent much the same as in his book two years later. The article covers the climb, and the tumult as they arrived in villages and Kathmandu on the way out. The article is 18 pages, and there are 25 photos, some in color, plus a map.
 
Many of the photos have appeared nowhere else. Plus some of the later iconic photos from the climb are included in the issue. Both color and b/w photos are included. The entire issue is present.
 
The magazine is in Very Good condition. The full issue is included.  It has some edge wear, but would still look terrific framed on a wall, or protected in a sleeve.
