About this Item

First edition. A copy with pleasing provenance having been part of the library of famed climber Eric Roberts. Extensively illustrated with photographs by various expedition members. 8vo, original navy blue cloth lettered on the spine in gilt, in the dustjacket. 188 pp. The book a fine copy, the jacket very good with only a little age-wear to the edges and fold lines and some modest mellowing. FIRST EDITION. A REMARKABLE STORY. FOUR MILES HIGH tells the story of Josephine Scarr, a 24 year-old recent graduate of Classics from Cambridge, who lives her dream of climbing mountaintops in the Himalayas. With another woman no older then herself she formed the "Women's Kula Expedition", received backing from the R.G.S. and Everest Foundation and launched themselves on an eight thousand mile journey and a year-long Indian adventure making what everyone said was impossible possible. From start to finish this is a delightful book. Bookseller Inventory # 27744
