Item Description: London Hodder and Stoughton 1934, 1934. First edition, early issue, October 1933, same as the first issue in the same binding and as the first issue. With 59 sepia full-page illustrations from the original photos, 3 diagrams in text, 4 maps (3 folding). Large, thick 8vo, publisher’s original dark black cloth lettered in gilt on the spine. xv, 390, including index. A fine, handsome and clean copy. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. A SCARCE ACCOUNT OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST TREKS UP EVEREST, SCARCE IN SUCH EXCELLENT CONDITION. This is the story of the Mount Everest Expedition of 1933, led by Hugh Ruttledge, the author, and describes one of the earliest attempts made to climb Mount Everest. This expedition did not stand alone in the series of man’s effort to reach the higher summits of the world, but was rather a stage in the evolution of mountaineering, in the adaption of the body to exotic conditions, and in the mastery of matter by the spirit. It began with experience dearly won by other men through toil and danger. and it was an expedition which stretched men to their breaking points. For the first time, mountaineers were able to sustain sleep conditions at the highest altitudes and were able to adapt rather successfully to conditions in the highest regions. "Hugh Ruttledge led this expedition, which was one of the first to attempt the climb of Mount Everest. Ruttledge's team included Frank Smythe, Eric Shipton, Wyn Harris and L. R. Wager, and it was the latter two who managed to reach 28,200 feet in their attempt to determine the possibility of climbing the northeast ridge. Their decision was that the ridge could not be climbed and they were forced to traverse the face instead. This work is a classic in the history of the climbing of Mount Everest, a feat finally accomplished twenty years later by Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal." Kahn ‘04 The climbing of Everest was a challenge still unmet when this expedition ended. But the foray made set still another important building block into the journey that would eventually succeed in 1953 under the leadership of Sir Edmund Hillary. A classic work in the mountaineering genre. Bookseller Inventory # 25879

Item Description: Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1936. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good Plus. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 5th Impression. We offer a nice bright example of this graphic account of the fourth British attempt to scale Mount Everest, which is inscribed on the half-title page by the author and leader of the expedition, Hugh Ruttledge: 'Best wishes from Hugh Ruttledge Feb. 1938'. This book is the first popular edition consisting of the narrative which forms the major part of the original account, which was first published in 1934. The volume is bound in blue cloth with titling in black on the spine and front cover and the text comprises 299 pages including index. There is a black and white photographic frontispiece and 16 other photographic plates, plus a folding map at rear of volume. The book is slightly faded at head and tail of spine corresponding to some loss on the spine of the dust-jacket; there is also small dent in the cloth on the top edge of the front cover. Neat inked owner's name (Clio R. Caridia) on title-page. Otherwise, the book is in bright, clean condition in a price-clipped dust-jacket. The jacket has a triangular area of loss (to a depth of one-inch) at head of spine and the last two letters of the title 'Everest' are missing. The tail of spine also has loss to a depth of a quarter-inch; the rear panel has a small brown stain near the bottom edge adjoining the spine. Notwithstanding detailed points noted, overall, the wrapper is bright and clean for its age and is now protected with a clear conservation sleeve. This copy with its rare signature is pleasing and nice to handle. Digital photographs available upon request. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 001359
