About this Item

First edition. From the library of Eric Roberts, famed climber who died in an avalanche while climbing Annapurna. Illustrated with excellent black and white photographs plus a frontispiece and full page drawings by H. G. Willink. 8vo, original blue cloth lettered on the spine in black, in the dustjacket with artwork by H. G. Willink. xii, 214pp. A very good, fresh and attractive copy, the dustjacket with a little wear at the edges and some minor general mellowing. FIRST EDITION, AND ONLY THE THIRD ENTRY IN THE "NEW ALPINE LIBRARY" SERIES. "No library of books on Alpine Climbing would be complete without a contribution from Lord Schuster, whose 'Peaks and Pleasant Pastures' is among the very best books ever written about mountaineering. Lord Schuster shares with Mr. Leo Amery, as Mr. Arnold Lunn reminds us in his introduction to this volume, the distinction of having been president both of the Alpine Club and of the Ski Club of Great Britain. His valedictory address on retiring from the presidency of the former is ranked by Mr. Lunn as the noblest of all the long series by past presidents, and it is included in this volume, as is also that historic paper "An Abstract Alpine Subject", which silenced forever those purists who affected to see "something particularly immoral in skiing faster than your neighbour". Also included are the author's " Note on the Meije", "The Rules of the Game" and an appreciation of John Tyndall as a mountaineer, as well as contributions written specially for this book." - Publisher.
