About this Item

First edition. This copy with provenance, from the collection of famed climber Eric Roberts who died in an avalanche on Annapurna. Beautifully illustrated with expedition photographs, including a frontispiece in colour, and with four maps. 8vo, original sky-blue cloth lettered on the spine in black, in the publisher's dustjacket. 223 pp. The text and binding essentially fine with only some minor mellowing, the jacket attractive and complete with some minor edge wear. FIRST EDITION WITH PROVENANCE OF THIS DIFFICULT TO FIND ACCOUNT OF THE ASCENT OF PUMASILLU, especially so in an attractive jacket. This is the story of a mountain, of adventure and hard climbing in the High Andes. But it is not just another expedition book. Simon Clark does not seek to give an official account of a group, but simply to recount his own intensely personal experiences as a member of a mountaineering venture to South America. In doing so he puts the flesh and blood of adventure into print. Bookseller Inventory # 27775
