LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Victor Gollancz, London - second impression, 1973. hardcover, 8 3/4" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Sound binding. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Dark-blue cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 12 b&w photographs. Here are the brief biographies of two dozen well-known climbers who helped to found and develop the sport from the early days until the outbreak of WWII. Some were truly outstanding figures, others contributed a small but significant mite to the sum total of mountaineering experience. Most are fairly well-known by name, but their exploits and backgrounds are seldom found in any detail. This book explains, perhaps, what it is that makes men climb mountains.
