BERGE DER WELT 1946 [MOUNTAIN WORLD 1946]
By Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research.
Price: $75.00


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Zurich, 1946. 254 pp, 40 photos. In German. Produced from 1946-1969 by the Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research.
 
Paperback (only edition I believe), profusely illustrated with photos, maps, sketches. Fine condition.
 
We are fortunate to have several copies of this premier issue of Berge Der Welt in actually brand new condition, as if from a time vault, which we purchased from the estate of the great California bookseller Vernon Howard about 15 years ago, and they have been hiding in our warehouse since then. This is an incredible oppurtunity to get a New condition copy of a rare book at a reasonable price.
 
This first issue of Mountain World has 36 articles on Swiss climbs in the Alps, with both pre-war, during the war and and post-war climbs. The Himalaya had not yet opened up, so this issue, only a year after the war ended, has articles only on the Alps, with one on a pre-war climb in the caucasus.
