"George Herbert Leigh Mallory (18 June 1886 â€" 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.

"The thrilling story of the top-scoring Allied fighter pilot of World War Two - 'Johnnie' Johnson. Joining the RAF Volunteer Reserve in 1939 as a sergeant pilot, he was to serve with Fighter Command squadrons throughout the war, scoring his 38th and final victory in September 1944, while patrolling over the Rhine with 443 Squadron. From the moment the author joins his first operational Spitfire squadron in August 1940, the reader is taken on an epic journey through the great aerial fighter actions of the war - the Battle of Britain, the sweeps across the Channel and over France, Dieppe and Normandy and operations into Germany itself. Particularly exciting are his accounts of operations with 616 Squadron, part of the Tangmere Wing led by the legendary Douglas Bader. By 1942 'Johnnie' Johnson was in command of 610 Squadron and finally the Canadian Spitfire Wing, which he led over the beaches of Normandy on D-Day."

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.

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".

En buen estado con pocas señales de uso Depósito legal: GHOSTS OF EVEREST unravels one of the most puzzling and compelling adventure mysteries of all time. On June 6, 1924, George Leigh Mallory and Andrew Comyn Irvine were only a few hundred feet short of becoming the first men to reach the highest spot on earth when they simply walked into the mist, never to be seen again. Did they reach the summit of Mount Everest - nearly three decades before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay? This is the meticulous report of both the 1924 British Expedition and the 1999 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition which found George Mallory's body and answers to the questions that have plagued historians and mountaineers alike: Did they make it?

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.

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. The fascinating account of Mallory and Irvine who disappeared on the Mountain in 1924. Thirty-eight year old George Leigh Mallory had been on the two previous British expeditions to Everest in the 1920s. He was celebrated as one of Britain's ablest rock climbers, and he had proven himself as a strong high-altitude climber on the Everest expeditions of 1921 and 1922. Andrew "Sandy" Irvine, only 22 at the time, had no Himalayan or high-altitude climbing experience. But he was adept at repairing the controversial oxygen apparatus used by the British climbers at high elevations. The local Tibetans and Sherpas laughed at the strange bottles containing what they referred to as "English Air." On earlier attempts, Mallory had felt instinctively that to use oxygen bottles to assist breathing in the thin air was somehow unsporting. On this third expedition, Mallory was coming around to the idea that without such artificial aid, Everest would never be climbed. And to Mallory, Irvine would be his ticket to success at the summit of Everest, for Irvine could take apart and rebuild the unreliable rigs that were used in their day. Irvine had fabricated an apparatus he called "Mark V." Even though he had succeeded in removing five pounds from the regularly issued version, his revised oxygen rig still weighed about 30 pounds. Moreover, the oxygen tanks were notoriously unreliable, and 38 of them that year were found to have leaks. After two attempts without using supplemental oxygen had failed to take the expedition higher than around 28,125 feet, Mallory decided on one more all-out assault using the controversial gas. On the morning of June 6, having breakfasted on a fry of tinned sardines, George Mallory and young Sandy Irvine set off from the top of the North Col at 23,100 feet, hoping to reach the summit three days later. They passed Howard Somervell, who loaned his camera to Mallory. Somervell was said not to be surprised, as Mallory was notoriously forgetful. Mallory and Irvine were last spotted, through mist, in the early afternoon of June 8 by geologist Noel Odell, who was following behind in support. He saw two black figures - no more than dots - approach and climb a rock step, called the Second Step, on the mountain's skyline, "nearing the base of the summit pyramid." To Odell, they seemed to be going strong and, although lower than he expected, he felt sure they should make it to the summit. Then clouds swirled in once more and Odell's tantalizing vision was lost forever. Shortly afterwards a sudden snow squall plastered the upper slopes with a thin layer of new snow. Upon arriving at the high camp, Odell noticed hardware from the oxygen apparatus strewn inside Mallory and Irvine's tent. It seems Irvine was hard at work, making final adjustments to their oxygen canisters before their departure for the summit. Could this have resulted in their leaving too late for their summit bid? Odell retreated to the North Col but kept watch all night for signs of life above him. There were none, and when two days later Odell began the long climb back up to Mallory and Irvine's last camp, it was. Bookseller Inventory # 024913
