Detailed Product Description
Mexico, Editorial Diana, S.A., 1947, 1st edition. 278 pp, b/w photographs, illustrations and map. In Spanish. The book was originally issued as a paperbound, and there are some damp stains to the first and last 20 pages, and this leather binding was added later. Silver letters on brown leather.  Hardcover, no Dust Jacket, Near Fine.

Tibor Sekelj was born in Spišská Sobota, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and was a journalist, explorer, writer and Esperantist. After starting work as a journalist in Zagreb, in 1939 Sekelj traveled to Argentina to make a report about the Yugoslav emigrants, and remained there for more than 15 years as a journalist and explorer.

This book is based on his 1944 expedition to Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside Asia, at 6,960.8 meters (22,837 ft), and the highest point in the Southern Hemisphere. It is located in the Andes mountain range, in the Mendoza Province, Argentina, and lies 112 kilometres (70 mi) northwest of its capital, the city of Mendoza. The mountain itself lies entirely within Argentina, immediately east of Argentina's border with Chile. Its nearest higher neighbor is Tirich Mir in the Hindu Kush, 16,520 kilometres (10,270 mi) away. It is one of the Seven Summits.
