About this Item

First edition. This copy with provenance, from the collection of famed climber Eric Roberts. With 32 plates of photographs and 9 illustrations within the text. 8vo, publisher's original blue cloth lettered on the spine in mountain motif in white. 203 pp. A fine text in lightly mellowed blue cloth. FIRST EDITION WITH PROVENANCE, VERY UNCOMMON. "This is an adventure story: a hair-raising narrative of grit and daring and endurance; a story of appalling dangers and exhilarating triumph. For decades the long snow-capped range of the Cordillera Blanca has challenged the climbers of the world. The supreme challenge is Huantsan; 21,000 feet of deep crevasses, of soft treacherous snow, of knife edges and vertical walls and tremendous cornices of ice. It was the dream of two young Dutchmen, Egeler and de Booy, that their country's flag should be the first to fly from its summit. This book is their own story of how they planted it there." - Contemporary review. Bookseller Inventory # 27944
