About this Item

First edition. A copy with fine provenance, coming from the library of famed climber Eric Roberts who died young on Annapurna, buried in an avalanche. Illustrated throughout, including photographs by the author on glossy plates, line drawings and maps. 8vo, original red cloth lettered on the spine in silver, in the original dustjacket a sometime laminated with clear plastic for preservation. xii, 113 pp. A fine copy, the book nearly pristine, the jacket very well preserved and very attractive with just a bit of very minor general mellowing. FIRST EDITION WITH PROVENANCE. The sheer size, scale and remoteness of the Cairngorms make them one of the most dramatic and harsh mountain environments in Britain, a challenge to even the most seasoned hill walkers. Many of the 43 Munros, include five of the six highest mountains in Britain. The author was a keen mountaineer and skier and was a ski instructor for the British Olympic Ski Team in the 1950s.
