About this Item: The Mountaineers Books, 1999. Large Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First edition. Jacket lightly bumped. 1999 Large Hardcover. 205 pp. "Unravels one of the most puzzling and compelling adventure mysteries of all time. On June 6, 1924, George Leigh Mallory and Andrew Comyn Irvine were only a few hundred feet short of becoming the first men to reach the highest spot on earth when they simply walked into the mist, never to be seen again. Did they reach the summit of Mount Everest - nearly three decades before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay? This is the meticulous report of both the 1924 British Expedition and the 1999 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition which found George Mallory's body and answers to the questions that have plagued historians and mountaineers alike: Did they make it? And, if they did, what happened to them?. Seller Inventory # 2265853

About this Item: Airlife, Shrewsbury, 1983. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 235 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). B&w photographs. "As Senior Intelligence Officer of 35 Wing, Irving studied and furthered the technical and tactical resources of low level photographic reconnaissance and the prompt distribution of intelligence derived from it. The unacceptable casualties incurred by 35 Wing in supporting the raid on Dieppe were proof of the tardy recognition by Army/Air planning staffs of the need for total co-operation between the Services in action if the liberation of Europe was to be achieved. The theme of this book is the contribution of 35 Wing to the preparation and achievement of Operation Overlord, the reconnoitring of V1 missile sites in France that subsequent bombing rendered inoperable and, above all, its services to 1st Canadian Army throughout the ensuing campaign. This personal record reflects an abiding memory and admiration for the skills, the devotion to duty, the light hearted companionship and dauntless courage of pilots inspired by exemplary and discerning commanding officers." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of front flap, light browning at top inside edge and at top edge of flaps, faint thin line indentation down front panel, minor rubbing.

About this Item: Washington : National Geographic Society, 1999. First Edition. Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered.; 239 pages; Description: 239 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 27 cm. Includes index. Subjects: Leigh-Mallory, George Herbert (1886-1924) --Mount Everest Expedition (1924) --Mountaineers --Great Britain --Biography. Summary: George Leigh Mallory's reported explanation of why he wanted to conquer Mount Everest is the most succinct -- and maybe the most famous -- remark in the history of mountaineering. And when he vanished into the clouds on June 8, 1924, near the summit of the highest peak on Earth, he became a legendary figure -- and the leading actor in one of the most compelling mysteries in the annals of 20th-century exploration. Did Mallory and his climbing partner Andrew Irvine, reach their exalted goal before they died? When a research expedition found Mallory's body in May 1999, new clues emerged to help in determining whether they did in fact succeed, 29 years before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first documented ascent. Last Climb is the spellbinding tale of what is known of Mallory's final attempt on Everest, but it's much more as well: an account of his two earlier expeditions to the Himalayan giant and a fascinating, evocative, superbly illustrated portrait of a daring era, when gentleman mountaineers climbed in leather boots and tweeds. Everest veteran and renowned filmmaker, David Breashears, and Audrey Salkeld, one of mountaineering's preeminent historians, make expert guides to this riveting story, highlighted by spectacular vintage photographs taken by Mallory and members of the British Mount Everest expeditions of the 1920s, as well as others culled from the archives of the Royal Geographical Society. In addition, the book boasts breathtaking, full-color photography of the high Himalaya, along with dramatic shots from the 1999 Mallory and Irvine Research Expedition. A book in the finest tradition of National Geographic, Last Climb is at once a thrilling narrative of challenge and courage; a treasury of rare historical images; and an unforgettable panorama of a forbidden, almost medieval world, the forbidding mountain at its heart, and the indomitable men who were willing to pay with their lives to master it -- and win immortality in return. 239 pp. Seller Inventory # 154957

About this Item: Sierra Club Books, San Francisco, 1983. 1st Edition, so stated. Hardbound oblong format: about 10.5 inches tall by 12.25 inches wide 191 pages. Bibliography, index. Wine colored endpapers. Description: Well illustrated with black and white and color photographs by Galen Rowell. From the jacket blurb: ''Galen's text recreates the journeys of past explorers -- from Marco Polo to George Leigh Mallory, Eric Shipton, Heinrich Harrer, and Terris Moore -- in six major mountain regions from Tian Shan to Inner Tibet. Each of these chapters is paired with another chronicling the author's own experiences in the same region, thus offering a perspective on the great changes that have occurred since the establishment of the Peoples Republic. Rowell's research brings to light countless little-known details about the natural history, culture, and politics of these regions. Most memorable are his portraits of the fiercely independent mountain tribes -- the Kirghiz, Uygurs, Goloks, and others -- who have struggled to retain their cultural identifies under the dominion of Peking often through bloody rebellions never reported in the Western press.'' BINDING/CONDITION: dark blue cloth with gilt; the top spine is bumped, otherwise a Near Fine book, with a Near Fine dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact. ISBN: 0-87156-339-8.

About this Item: Simon & Schuster (New York), 1978. Hardcover / Hardback. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First edition. Hardback. The endless mystery of Amelia Earhart's last flight. The mysterious disappearance of Judge Joseph Force Crater. The vanishing acts of Agatha Christie, Sherwood Anderson and Aimee Semple McPherson. The lost adventurers - Colonel Percy Fawcett, Richard Halliburton, and George Leigh-Mallory. These famous faces and hundreds more make up this fascinating and fact-filled book, the most comprehensive book, (at the time), ever on the subject of missing persons. Along with the cases that made national and worldwide headlines, there are the exotic stories of infamous or until now obscure missing persons which read like captivating mystery, adventure, and sometimes science fiction tales. There is the case of New York heiress Dorothy Arnold, who vanished forever while crossing Fifth Avenue during a day of shopping. And David Lang, who according to 5 eyewitnesses, evaporated into thin air on a Tennessee country road in 1880. Then there was Arthur Orton, who insisted until his last breath that he was Roger Charles Tichborne, the scion of one of England's oldest families, whose vast holdings brought him a million dollars a year until he mysteriously disappeared with the ship Bella in 1854. The stories of those who returned from the world of the missing are often the most bizarre. The book contains all the elements of high human drama: love, vengeance, avarice, adventure, mystery, violence, sex, and murder. Illus., A Chronology of Missing Persons, Bibliog. and Index. 445pp. lge 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg+ in frayed and chipped G++ dw. A heavy book which will require additional postage. Seller Inventory # 15387

About this Item: Mountaineers, Inglaterra, 1999. Condition: Usado. 1ª. Pág./pages:207 1100 gramos/grams En buen estado con pocas señales de uso Idioma/Language:Ingles GHOSTS OF EVEREST unravels one of the most puzzling and compelling adventure mysteries of all time. On June 6, 1924, George Leigh Mallory and Andrew Comyn Irvine were only a few hundred feet short of becoming the first men to reach the highest spot on earth when they simply walked into the mist, never to be seen again. Did they reach the summit of Mount Everest - nearly three decades before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay? This is the meticulous report of both the 1924 British Expedition and the 1999 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition which found George Mallory's body and answers to the questions that have plagued historians and mountaineers alike: Did they make it? And, if they did, what happened to them? 23 x 25 x 2. Seller Inventory # IB0525DQ
