Detailed Product Description
UK, Gastons-West Col, 1978, 1st UK edition. 316 pp, illustrations. Hardcover with dust jacket. Like New condition. 

There were two US editions, a hardcover and a paperback. Therefore very few of the true first edition, the one we are offering, made it to America. Despite its age, 46 years ago, I keep a copy near my desk as it lists many books and expeditions not listed in Neate.The long descriptions of each expedition, successful and not, plus naming all the climbers and altitudes reached of each expedition, make this very handy.

One of the most useful reference books on 8000m peaks. Contains a complete climbing history of each of the 14 8000 m peaks. A history of attempts and successes in climbing the fourteen 8,000 meter peaks in the Himalayas, with chronological notes on each, details of local maps, and a list of reference works pertaining to each mountain, which is supplemented by a more detailed bibliography at the rear of the book (41 pages). The peaks include Everest, Kangchenjunga, Cho Oyu, Manaslu, Annapurna, Nanga Parbat, and K2.
