Detailed Product Description
Tokyo,  Gakushunkenkusha, 1977, 1st )only) edition. 15 inches tall x 10 inches wide, 329 pages, 32 pages of color photos, 78 black & white photos in the text, 30 full-page or double-page color maps, 19 black & white in-text maps. Hardcover book is enclosed in a slipcase.
 
Maps include Mt. Everest, Sikkim Himalaya, Bhutan, Srinagar, Leh, Nun Kun, Kishtwar, Menthosa, Central Lahoul, Kulu, Leo Pargial, Gangotri, Kamet, Nanada Devi, Api Nampa Saipal, Kanjiroba Himal, Dhaulagiri Himal, Annapurna Himal, Manaslu Himal, Langtang Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling Himal, Khumbu Himal, Kangchenjunga.

This magnificent book has almost legendary status in the mountaineering community, as the maps and color photos are so wonderful, and due to its high initial price 40 years ago, and limited production, very few copies entered the USA, and fewer still come onto the book market. 

This book is bound in its original blue cloth, with an embossed decoration on the front, gilt lettering and orange title block front cover, orange title block spine with gilt lettering, additional gilt and orange lettering spine. This book was published without a dust jacket but it comes with the original cardboard slipcase that has a color photo with title tipped-on around spine. The slipcase has done its job and the book and slipcase are in New condition.

The main text is in Japanese, but the photos are captioned in English, and the map names & the features on each map are in English. Most of the color maps are double-page in size. The Japanese text gives a history of climbing and exploration for the peaks on each of the maps, followed by a list of references (often citations are in English) for each area
 
Due to the large weight and size of this book, extra postage will be needed for priority mail, or foreign delivery.
