Detailed Product Description

GUIDE DES LIVRES SUR LA MONTAGNE ET L'ALPINISME 1492-2021 [GUIDE TO BOOKS ON MOUNTAINS AND MOUNTAINEERING]. Three Volumes, 2022. 

Volume One of this 3 Volume Set is SIGNED and Numbered by Author Jacques Perret.

Twenty-five years after the publication of the first edition , Jacques Perret has published the second edition of this monumental and indispensable critical bibliography of books about Mountains and Mountaineering. 

This set of three books are heavy, about 20 lbs, due to the coated paper stock, the type usually found only on the most expensive art books, and they need extra protective packing materials.  Therefore extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail and International Mail. 



This is the most complete bibliography of Mountaineering Books ever done. It includees all the classic books in the major European languages. This book includes British, American, French, Swiss, German and Italian language books, which covers the majority of important books on the Alps and Himalaya. It includes all the pre-1900 classic books, especially on the early Alps, so it will never be exceded by any more complete bibliography in the future. 

This edition has been corrected and considerably enlarged, not only by recent books published during the last twenty-five years, but also by very many old books, some of which had been omitted from the first edition. In total, more than 8,600 works are described, an increase of nearly 75%, and with nearly 2,500 biographical author notes instead of 950. It is issued in three volumes totaling more than 2,250 pages and weighing nearly ten kilos.  

This wotk is arranged by author, and supplemented by indexes arranged by title, by massifs and by main peaks. This is an essential tool for collectors, booksellers, researchers, and more generally for all mountain lovers.  The work consists of 3 volumes, each volume is a hardcover 9 1/2 inches tall, with sewn cloth bindings. Each volume has the title and artwork printed on the cover, and no dust jackets are used. The paper used is printed in offset on a 90 gram semi-coated matte paper. This is quite durable paper, and pages and binding will not deteriorate with age.

Volume I: Introduction, Book Listings with Authors A to F, 787 pages;

Volume II: Book Listings with Authors G to R, 762 pages;

Volume III: Book Listings with Authors S to Z, Anonymous Authors, Index of Titles, Index by Mountain Massifs and Main Peaks, 703 pp.

Published in three Volumes. Paris, Giraud-Badin, 2022, 2nd edition. (The First Edition was in 2 volumes in 1997; 572, 573 pages.) The books are  written In French. This is the ultimate bibliography of mountaineering books. It corrects the major flaw with the Neate bibliography, which only listed books in English. This book includes British, American, French, Swiss, German and Italian language books, which covers the majority of important books on the Alps and Himalaya.
