Detailed Product Description
London, 1946, 1st UK edition. 251 pp, b/w photos, color frontis, index. Hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine.

Amery's autobiography follows the private life of a politician and his interest in the outdoors, particularly mountaineering. It covers a period of two world wars. Reflections on climbs in the Alps, Rockies, Africa and New Zealand in the 1920s by a British President of the A.C. [Neate A44.] 

Leopold Amery (18731955) was a British Conservative politician, Secretary of State for India and many other offices. Amery was an ally of Churchill's during the appeasement period that led to WW2. Amery was a noted sportsman, especially famous as a mountaineer. He continued to climb well into his sixties, especially in the Swiss Alps but also in Bavaria, Austria, Yugoslavia, Italy and the Canadian Rockies, where Mount Amery is named after him. He enjoyed skiing as well. He was a member of the Alpine Club (serving as its president, 19431945) and of the Athenaeum and Carlton Clubs.
