Detailed Product Description
This is a reprint done in Japan, and was sold as sets in a box. All volumes are in New condition. A very desirable and scarce set of the early issues of the Himalayan Journal! Himalayan Journals contain riches of information on expeditions and peaks in the Himalayas that has been published nowhere else.

'The Himalayan Journal continues to be the prime activity  of HC.  First published in 1928, HJ has achieved a world wide recognition as the most authoritative source of reference  on  the  Himalaya,  Karakoram  and  Hindu  Kush.  Except  for  the  war  years  it  was  continually published  covering  all  the  major  expeditions.  Over the  years  many  expeditions  are  forgotten  except  those recorded in the literature and journals.

It had a string of great editors. Maj. Kenneth Mason of Survey of India was the first editor who produced HJ for 14 years. He set very high standards and when expeditions were few he gave a scholarly outlook to the publication.  Mason set  up  a  tradition  that  others  continued. C.W.F.  Noyce,  H.W.  Tobin,  T.H.  Braham  and Dr.  K.  Biswas  were  some  editors  who  followed. 

Soli S.  Mehta  who  took  over  editorship  in  1967  brought fresh  ideas  and  energies.  He  gave HJ  a  face  lift  and  introduced many changes. Soli Mehta produced 11 issues  before  his  untimely  death  in  1989.  R.  E.  Hawkins  was  responsible  for  strengthening  of  HJ.  As  the  Hon.  Asst.  Editor  he  set  up  editorial  traditions  and  brought  HJ  in  line  with  the  other  modern  publications. Now  a  team  of  enthusiasts  under  editors  Harish  Kapadia  and  Monesh  Devjani  continue  the  HJ  tradition' (Himalaya Club official website).
