Detailed Product Description


NEW! WE FOUND LOST COPIES IN OUR WAREHOUSE! 

MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE: RARE UK 1ST EDITION

SIGNED by Stephen Venables   COLLECTIBLE!

UK, 2003, 1st UK edition. 252 pp, 400 color & b/w photos. The USA and UK editions are identical, but as the author and original publisher are British, the UK edition may be more collectible. Extra Large Hardcover with dust jacket, new condition.

This is the 'Big Book' to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Tenzing and Hillary's climb, and may very well be the definitive photo history of the peak.

Venables tells the great Everest stories, made better with photos from the vast archives of the Royal Geographical Society who sponsored many UK Everest expeditions.Includes contributions by Ed Hillary, the Dalai Lama, Ed Douglas, John Keay, Tashi Tenzing, Mike Westmacott, etc.

On May 29, 1953, New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay stood atop the highest mountain in the world, where no one had ever stood before. This magnificent volume celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of their historic climb and chronicles the history of Everest exploration from the early years of the twentieth century to the present.

It is the first and only book on the subject to benefit from complete access to the Royal Geographical Society's astonishingly rich collection of photographs, documents, and artifacts. Painstakingly selected from over 20,000 subjects, more than 400 photographs - many never before published - record the surveying, planning, reconnaissance expeditions, and ascents that the Royal Geographical Society and the Alpine Club jointly launched - beginning in 1921 and culminating in Hillary and Norgay's landmark feat.

Extra Large Hardcover with dust jacket, new condition. Extra postage for priority and foreign mail.
