Detailed Product Description
The American Alpine Journal. A complete run of 95 volumes, 1929 to 2021, 20,000+ pages, some color & 100s of b/w photos & maps, overall condition Very Good - New, with Indexes. Most are Fine. Starting about 1966 all copies were issued with dust jacket. Starting about 2000 the cover and internal illustrations went all color. 

Under the editor ship of H. Adams Carter, David Robertson, Christian Beckwith, John Harlin, Dougald MacDonald, and others for the last ninety-four years this has become the Journal of Record for important climbs in the Himalaya, Karakoram, Andes, Patagonia, Alaska, Canada, Antarctica, Baffin Island, plus of course the USA and South America. 

A complete mountaineering library needs these journals as most climbs are never mentioned in books, and the only reference to even major peaks is often only in Journals. For many years, and even today, expeditions to remote regions that had no guidebooks start their planning with the AAJ. All issues are in original wrappers, and are in Very Good to New Condition.

The original owner of this set of AAJs was a gentleman climber in the 1920s and 1930s. He collected AAJs until 1970. At some point he decided it would be a nice idea to have the journals bound in cloth covered boards, like fine books. So he ordered a set of covers that were customer made, with gold spine titles. However, he never had the journals bound in. He merely placed the journals in the covers on his bookshelves. This has helped preserve the early issues in Near Fine condition. We will include the covers, which are still in bright new condition, if the buyer wants them. Modern collecting conventions seem to lean more toward leaving the journals as they were issued. Also, it would probably be expensive to have the journals bound.  

A full set of the premier Mountaineering Journal in the world! 1929-2021

These nearly 95 volumes are a tremendous resource complete with expedition accounts from around the world, club activities, book reviews, and much more! This set will take up six feet of shelf space and weighs over 150 pounds. 

If we ship this set to you, we will charge postage for 95 heavy books, both domestic or international, on this set, as it weighs 150 pounds. As of 2022 it costs about $150 USA Domestic Media Rate to anyplace with an American Zip Code. Although we do not normally use UPS, we will, if requested, ship these Journals to you by UPS ground. It will be expensive, compared to UPS Media Rate, which is by design cheaper than any other method of surface shipping in the USA.
