Going High: The Story of Man and Altitude
Inscribed and signed by the author on the half-title page: "Best wishes / to E-- and D-- / from Charles Houston." The author (1913-2009) was a major figure in international climbing circles during the 20th century, participating in early attempts on K2 and Nanda Devi (when his party summitted the latter in 1936, it was the highest mountain ever climbed). Houston was a flight surgeon in World War II and then a physician who pioneered research into the effects on altitude on human health. The book is tight and unmarked; slight spine slant; spine and wraps are uncreased. Sleeve protected. Bookseller Inventory # 002774
