Item Description: Royal Geographical Society, London, 1922. First Edition. 40 pages, 1 full-page sketch map. Plus Photo Gravure plates, 1 of which is a fold-out, and a fold-out color map, measuring approximately 8 inches x 14 inches. Original condition with blue wrappers, titles to front, and containing all the ads. This is a complete issue, seldom found in such good and original condition. Sections are as follows: Darjeeling to the Rongbuk Glacier Base Camp. By: Brig.-General the Hon. C. G. Bruce The East Rongbuk Glacier By: Lieut.-Colonel E. L. Strutt The First High Climb By: George Leigh Mallory The Second High Climb By: Captain George I. Finch Mount Everest Photographs Gripping narrative of the Second British Everest Expedition in the words of C G Bruce, expedition leader, and those of various other team members. Following the route successfully reconnoitered in 1921, this expedition featured two assaults, that of Mallory, Norton and Somervell, followed by Finch and Bruce's attempt, achieving altitudes of 8225 metres and 8321 metres, respectively. Despite failing to reach the summit on either occasion, the 1922 expedition added significantly to the knowledge and experience that would ultimately help other British climbers conquer the summit in the early 1950's. It achieved notoriety too as the first expedition on which signficant life was lost - seven sherpas died in an avalanche on the route to the North Col - and constituted the last ascent Mallory would make before his disappearance in June 1924. Climbing leader and deputy expedition leader Edward Lisle Strutt's narrative describes the exploration and surveying of the East Rongbuk glacier, the journey to No. III Camp and subsequent ascent of the North Col accompanied by Morshead, Norton, Somervell, Mallory and ten porters, where he describes the slopes of the Chang La and the attempt by Finch and Bruce of the Col. Mallory's recounting of the 'first high climb; with colleagues Norton and Somervell deals pragmatically with matters of shelter below the North Col; chances of success; capacity of the porters to carry loads above 23,000 feet and the limits of the climbers; difficulties relating to the apparently impassable crevasse on the col; anxiety about the weather; acclimatisation problems and the merits of climbing with oxygen. Captain George Finch, a part of Everest's 'second assault' together with Bruce, reports on their ascent progress, offering his opinion on the usefulness of oxygen as a climbing aid and the benefits the two experienced from it whilst ascending the Col; praise for the efforts of the sherpas. A good humoured and anecdotal account. A set of fifteen photos (including panoramic aspects) featuring all members of the expedition, the Serracs, Chang La Camp, the Rongbuk Glacier and more is accompanied by a useful detailed guide prividing additional information and context.

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

"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.

Item Description: München : Steiger, 2000. 240 S. : zahlr. Illustrationen ; 26 cm Buch incl. 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! Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1211 OPappeinband, mit Silberprägung, SU, Mängelexemplar. Bookseller Inventory # 123386
