Detailed Product Description
Zurich, 1946. 254 pp, 40 b/w photos, maps, sketches. In German. Produced from 1946-1969 by the Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research. Paperback. Fine condition.
 
We are fortunate to have several copies of this premier issue of Berge Der Welt, 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 opportunity 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.
