Detailed Product Description

London, 1954, 1st edition. 128 pp, 150 b/w photos. Pictorial mapped hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Top of spine and jacket are bent. Very Good.

After Everest was climbed and the first accounts were published, it was realized that more books were desired. This contains previously unpublished photos of the Everest 1st ascent expedition; a companion volume to Ascent and Conquest of Everest. 

John Hunt was born in India, and educated at Marlborough College and at Sandhurst. After a distinguished military career in India and Europe, he led the first successful expedition to climb Mount Everest and was knighted. He also led the British party in the British-Soviet Caucasian mountaineering expedition (1958), and was involved in mountaineering expeditions in western Europe, the Middle East, Himalayas, Greenland, Russia, Greece and Poland.

From its inception in 1956, he was director of the Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme and was created a life peer for services to youth on his retirement in 1966. He then became chairman of the Parole Board of England and Wales (1967-1974) and the National Association of Probation Officers (1974-1980) and championed penal reform. He became a Knight of the Garter in 1979. His publications include The Ascent of Everest (1953), Red Snows, Our Everest Adventure, In Search of Adventure, and his autobiography, Life is Meeting.
