Dutton & Company, 1954. 8vo., blue & gray cloth in dust jacket; 300 pages. First Edition, first printing. Hunt led the ninth British expedition to Everest in 1953, with New Zealand mountaineer Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay reaching the summit on May 29, 1953. Members of the expedition made a lecture tour in the United States in the winter of 1953-54, when most copies of this book in the marketplace were signed. This copy is signed by five expedition members on the front endpaper: John Hunt, Edmund Hillary, Charles Evans, George Lane and Griffith Pugh. Hard to find copies signed by so many expedition members, especially Hunt. Very Good (covers nice; contents clean & tight); nice (very minor edgewear; $6.00 price is present on the front flap) d/j.
