Item Description: Pimlico, 1996. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Printing. First printing. Pages toned. 1996 Trade Paperback. 326 pp. Several pages of photographs. "George Herbert Leigh Mallory (18 June 1886 – 8/9 June 1924) was an English mountaineer who took part in the first three British expeditions to Mount Everest in the early 1920s. During British Mount Everest Expedition 1924, the third British attempt on the world's highest mountain, Mallory and his climbing partner Andrew Irvine both disappeared somewhere high on the North-East ridge during their attempt to make the first ascent or descent of the world's highest mountain. The pair's last known sighting was only a few hundred metres from the summit. Mallory's ultimate fate was unknown for 75 years, until his body was finally discovered in 1999 by an expedition that had set out to search for the climbers' remains. Whether or not they reached the summit before they died remains a subject of speculation and continuing research.Andrew "Sandy" Comyn Irvine (born 8 April 1902; died 8 or 9 June 1924) was an English mountaineer who took part in British Mount Everest Expedition 1924, the third British Expedition to the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest. While attempting the first ascent of Mount Everest, he and his climbing partner George Mallory disappeared somewhere high on the mountain's northeast ridge. The pair's last known sighting was only a few hundred metres from the summit.". Bookseller Inventory # 1534205

Item Description: Washington : National Geographic Society, 1999. 1st Edition. Description: 239 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 27 cm. Includes index. Subjects: Leigh-Mallory, George Herbert (1886-1924) --Mount Everest Expedition (1924) --Mountaineers --Great Britain --Biography. Summary: George Leigh Mallory's reported explanation of why he wanted to conquer Mount Everest is the most succinct -- and maybe the most famous -- remark in the history of mountaineering. And when he vanished into the clouds on June 8, 1924, near the summit of the highest peak on Earth, he became a legendary figure -- and the leading actor in one of the most compelling mysteries in the annals of 20th-century exploration. Did Mallory and his climbing partner Andrew Irvine, reach their exalted goal before they died? When a research expedition found Mallory's body in May 1999, new clues emerged to help in determining whether they did in fact succeed, 29 years before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first documented ascent. Last Climb is the spellbinding tale of what is known of Mallory's final attempt on Everest, but it's much more as well: an account of his two earlier expeditions to the Himalayan giant and a fascinating, evocative, superbly illustrated portrait of a daring era, when gentleman mountaineers climbed in leather boots and tweeds. Everest veteran and renowned filmmaker, David Breashears, and Audrey Salkeld, one of mountaineering's preeminent historians, make expert guides to this riveting story, highlighted by spectacular vintage photographs taken by Mallory and members of the British Mount Everest expeditions of the 1920s, as well as others culled from the archives of the Royal Geographical Society. In addition, the book boasts breathtaking, full-color photography of the high Himalaya, along with dramatic shots from the 1999 Mallory and Irvine Research Expedition. A book in the finest tradition of National Geographic, Last Climb is at once a thrilling narrative of challenge and courage; a treasury of rare historical images; and an unforgettable panorama of a forbidden, almost medieval world, the forbidding mountain at its heart, and the indomitable men who were willing to pay with their lives to master it -- and win immortality in return. Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. 1 Kg. 239 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 154957

Item Description: Sierra Club Books, San Francisco, 1983. 1st Edition, so stated. Hardbound oblong format: about 10.5 inches tall by 12.25 inches wide 191 pages. Bibliography, index. Wine colored endpapers. Description: Well illustrated with black and white and color photographs by Galen Rowell. From the jacket blurb: ''Galen's text recreates the journeys of past explorers -- from Marco Polo to George Leigh Mallory, Eric Shipton, Heinrich Harrer, and Terris Moore -- in six major mountain regions from Tian Shan to Inner Tibet. Each of these chapters is paired with another chronicling the author's own experiences in the same region, thus offering a perspective on the great changes that have occurred since the establishment of the Peoples Republic. Rowell's research brings to light countless little-known details about the natural history, culture, and politics of these regions. Most memorable are his portraits of the fiercely independent mountain tribes -- the Kirghiz, Uygurs, Goloks, and others -- who have struggled to retain their cultural identifies under the dominion of Peking often through bloody rebellions never reported in the Western press.'' BINDING/CONDITION: dark blue cloth with gilt; the top spine is bumped, otherwise a Near Fine book, with a Near Fine dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact. ISBN: 0-87156-339-8.

(150X234). polski/Polish; Pages/stron: 290; Categories: Literatura gorska; Opis: „Bo jest" – slynna odpowiedz George’a Leigh Mallory’ego na pytanie, dlaczego chce zdobyc Mount Everest – eksponuje doswiadczenie ontologiczne jako fundament alpinizmu. Wspinaczka wysokogorska nie jest wiec prostym wyjsciem ze swiata kultury w swiat natury, to raczej doswiadczenie istnienia granic pomiedzy nimi. Alpinista porusza sie wlasnie po tej „grani". Przedmiotem niniejszej ksiazki jest proba dookreslenia kulturowego modelu transgresji w dyskursie alpinizmu: w jaki sposob fundamentalna ontologia doswiadczenia liminalnego ksztaltuje model swiata alpinistow oraz jakiego wzorca osobowosci im dostarcza. Na material badawczy wykorzystany w ksiazce skladaja sie wypowiedzi alpinistow pozyskane w trakcie antropologicznych kwestionariuszowych badan terenowych oraz narracje zaczerpniete z literatury alpinistycznej. Poprzez ich pryzmat lakoniczne „Bo jest" doswiadczenia alpinistycznego przedstawia sie w pelni swej zlozonosci jako kontekstualne zjawisko kulturowe. Bookseller Inventory # mZAU7R

SU in sehr guter Erhaltung, Einband sauber und unbestoßen, Seiten hell und sauber, ohne Einträge, im Fußschnitt als Mängelexemplar gestempelt, Dies ist einer der schönsten und vielleicht auch lesenswertesten Bände, die nach dem Auffinden des seit über 75 Jahren verschollenen britischen Bergsteigers George Mallory im Mai 1999 zuhauf erschienen sind. Die Autoren weisen auf die vielerlei Möglichkeiten hin, wie er und sein Kletterpartner Sandy Irvine die letzten Stunden am Gipfel des Mount Everest verbracht haben, ohne dabei ausser acht zu lassen, dass durchaus ein Gipfelsturm möglich gewesen sein könnte. Aus heutiger Sicht mit damaligen Mitteln als unmöglich verschrien (mangelnde Kenntnis über den Berg und Sauerstoffverbrauch, leckgeschlagene Gerätschaften, unzureichende Kleidung etc.), wird doch deutlich, welchen Mut und geradezu Tollkühnheit die kleine Gruppe britischer Bergsteiger besaß, um ein derartiges Unternehmen zu organisieren und durchzuführen. Der Leser verschafft sich einen genaueren Überblick über damaliges Equipment, die Strapazen, die die Reise an den Everest mit sich brachte, den ungemeinen Idealismus, mit dem man hoffte, den Berg zu bezwingen. Auch der menschliche Aspekt kommt nicht zu kurz. So erfährt man in kurzweiligem Stil auch etwas über die beiden Protagonisten, George Leigh Mallory und Andrew Irvine; ihr Leben vor dem Berg (was besonders im Falle Irvines leider tragisch kurz war) und ihre Beweggründe, die durchaus nachvollziehbar sind. Zu einem Genuß macht dieses Buch seine wundervollen, teilweise kaum bekannten Photographien von der 1924er Expedition ins tibetische Hochland. Empfohlen seien jedem Interessierten die Biographien von Peter Gilmann (George Mallory) und Julie Summers (Sandy Irvine), die sich genauso spannend lesen wie die Expeditionsberichte!

Item Description: Simon & Schuster (New York), 1978. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First edition. Hardback. The endless mystery of Amelia Earhart's last flight. The mysterious disappearance of Judge Joseph Force Crater. The vanishing acts of Agatha Christie, Sherwood Anderson and Aimee Semple McPherson. The lost adventurers - Colonel Percy Fawcett, Richard Halliburton, and George Leigh-Mallory. These famous faces and hundreds more make up this fascinating and fact-filled book, the most comprehensive book, (at the time), ever on the subject of missing persons. Along with the cases that made national and worldwide headlines, there are the exotic stories of infamous or until now obscure missing persons which read like captivating mystery, adventure, and sometimes science fiction tales. There is the case of New York heiress Dorothy Arnold, who vanished forever while crossing Fifth Avenue during a day of shopping. And David Lang, who according to 5 eyewitnesses, evaporated into thin air on a Tennessee country road in 1880. Then there was Arthur Orton, who insisted until his last breath that he was Roger Charles Tichborne, the scion of one of England's oldest families, whose vast holdings brought him a million dollars a year until he mysteriously disappeared with the ship Bella in 1854. The stories of those who returned from the world of the missing are often the most bizarre. The book contains all the elements of high human drama: love, vengeance, avarice, adventure, mystery, violence, sex, and murder. Illus., A Chronology of Missing Persons, Bibliog. and Index. 445pp. lge 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg+ in frayed and chipped G++ dw. A heavy book which will require additional postage. Bookseller Inventory # 15387
