Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Lincoln, University of Nebraska Press, 1978, 1st edition, 278 pages, illustrated with photographs, two maps. Hardcover with a Dust Jacket, DJ not price clipped, book and DJ are both fine.

This book is INSCRIBED AND SIGNED on the title page ''For Alan... Jeremy Bernstein Jan 1993.

Comprises eight of the author's articles on climbing centering on the Chamonix Valley of France and on Claude Jaccoux, an alpine guide of Chamonix. Includes a famous profile of Yvon Chouinard, a profile of Gary Hemming, and an overland trip by Land Rover from France to Pakistan. 

Jeremy Bernstein wrote three delightful mountaineering books, mostly collections of his New Yorker Magazine articles. To say ''New Yorker'' automatically tells you he is an enjoyable writer. He is also really a physicist, and wrote 29 or more books on science. 

He was a customer of ours when we started out in the 1980s, and we would chat on the telephone when he was ordering books. He did not sign many books, we may have sent this one to him for my own collection. As of 2021 he is still alive, age 91, and last we knew he lived just north of Washington Square in NYC.
