About this title

Synopsis:

Book by IAN CAMERON

From Library Journal:

In association with the British Royal Geographic Society and with access to their extensive archives, Cameron has produced a fine sourcebook on the Central Asian mountains. Although emphasis is on explorers and climbers, this is not exclusively a mountaineering book. Early chapters deal with geology, history, and inhabitants of this vast region. Cameron traces British exploration, which began about the end of the 18th century triggered by the East India Company, and follows climbers from late 19th century to the present. Quotes from the writings of these hardy visitors make up a considerable part of later chapters, and one can dip into the book almost anywhere and become immersed in their vicissitudes and triumphs.

Store Description

Established in 2001, Arapiles Mountain Books is the only specialist mountaineering bookseller in Australia. We carry a large stock of fine, rare and out of print mountaineering and adventurous travel books, with a particular emphasis on British, Australian, New Zealand and Himalayan climbing narratives and guides. We have an especially wide selection of early - mid 20th travel books in dustwrapper, signed books and expedition memorabilia. On-line catalogues can be browsed on this website ('Browse Our Inventory'). The proprietor, Andrew Long, has climbed the world over since 1980, and has spent much of his time over the (last few) years, collecting and reading climbing and travel narratives by more intrepid writers. He will be happy to answer any queries or provide advice on condition, approximate value, rarity or just plain readability free of charge. A booksearch service is available. Although we are a mail order store, visitors are most welcome to browse our stock by making an appointment. I have a bricks and mortar bookshop in Central Victoria ('Mount of Alex', 273 Barker Street, Castlemaine), and books may either be inspected here or at my Melbourne office at 54-58 Smith Street, Collingwood. Please allow a few days for me to organise the books at either location. Thanks for your patience. Appointments to view the stock may be made by calling Andrew on +61 410 650 923 or by email to araps@alassoc.com.au.
