Detailed Product Description
Tokyo, The Mainichi Newspapers, 1958, 1st edition. 353 pp, 13 page introduction in English, 100s of photos, maps, foldouts. Described in Neate J17 and Yakushi j526. Sivalaya pages 141-142. Some English.  Tall hardcover, 10 1/2'', or 26 cm, bound in handsome red cloth hardcover.  The DJ is very clean and bright, and has slight edge wear, one chip, and is Near Fine. The book is utterly flawless, and is Fine. 

Includes accounts of the 1954 and 1956 Japanese Manaslu expeditions, which includes the first ascent. This is the most important Japanese language book for collectors as this is an official account of the first ascent of an 8000m peak. 

After WW2, all the major belligerents burst out of their gates and headed for the Himalaya and Karakoram. In ten years all the 8000, peaks except Shishapangma were climbed. The Japanese had their heart set on Manaslu, and in 4 years, 1952-1956, they sent 4 expeditions to climb Manaslu. This resulted in three books, mostly in Japanese, but with photo captions and a summary of the expedition in English.   
The titles of the three Manaslu books are:
Manaslu 1952-53.  Japanese Alpine Club
Manaslu 1954-56    Japanese Alpine Club
ASCENT OF MANASLU IN PHOTOGRAPHS 1952-56.  Mainichi Newspapers
