Detailed Product Description



New York, AAC, 1949, 1st edition. 271 pp, photos, maps. Small hardcover, in excellent condition.  No edge wear, no internal or external writing or marks, clean and Fine. 

The book was issued with a glassine dust jacket, which is present!  After 75 years, how did it survive? The glassine DJ is clear translucent lightweight paper that was used for protection of many things, not just books. The dust cover has edge wear and there is a chunk missing from the rear cover area, although the spine section is mostly intact. The book itself is flawless. 

This guidebook was the first book by Beckey who was only 26 years old when he wrote it.  It is now scarce and one of the most collectible American mountaineering books.
