Detailed Product Description
United Press, December 10, 1957. 8x10 inch original news photograph with caption glued to back. Caption reads: "Operations In Antarctica. Antarctica: Sir Edmund Hillary, who is leading the New Zealand party which is making the 700-mile journey to meet the main party of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, headed by Dr. Fuchs. The Expedition forms part of the International Geophysical Year." Glossy photo is a working proof, so is a bit bowed from the glue used on back and is creased in a few places. Very Good condition overall.

We were fortunate to have met with Sir Edmund Hillary many times in the 1990s and 2000s.  Being booksellers, we often asked him to autograph books by and about him. But we also brought along some other goodies.

Edmund Hillary signed this photo for us about 30 years ago in Los Angeles during a fund raising event for the American Himalayan Foundation, to which we had contributed. The print is signed in blue ink.

A note on Postage: 

If you are ordering just a Hillary photo (or several) to a US address, we will ship it by Priority Mail for $10.  If ordering with other items, it is just 95 cents extra.

If order just a photo (or several) to a Canadian or Foreign Address, we will charge $25.  This is because the US has very high international rates, and to protect the photo we have to add stiffeners that add weight. If you order a photo with other items, we can usually send it at what the website adds for one additional item, usually under $10.
