Detailed Product Description

UK, 2003, 1st edition. 224 pp, photos. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition. 

Noel was the photographer and filmmaker on the Everest expeditions of 1922 and 1924. This is a collection of the best of his photos, the first systematic coverage of an Everest expedition, and Mallory's last climb.

This book, written by his daughter, uniquely captures the drama and tragedy of the 1922 and 1924 expeditions on Everest - the first to venture upon the highest mountain on earth - using the best of the pictures of Captain John Noel, official photographer to the expeditions. John Noel was a 29-year-old Army officer when, during the presentation of a paper to the RGS, he first suggested that an expedition should be made to climb Everest.

He knew Tibet well and was therefore invited on the first Everest Reconnaissance Expedition in 1922 by Francis Younghusband, its leader. His 1922 film, taken with his cine camera, was such a public success that he was invited to return to Everest in 1924. His photographs capture the dramatic beauty of the region and the expedition's travel through the Everest plains, up the north-east ridge, and Mallory and Irvine's final assault on the summit, never to return. 

This is a large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priorty Mail and Internation Mail.
