LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

The Fell & Rock Climbing Club of the English Lake District, 1938. 8vo. original folded card, printed on both sides with gilt embossed logo of the Club on the upper panel, listing the dinner menu, toasts (The King, The Queen, The FRCC, Guests, Kindred Clubs and the Everest Expedition 1938) and the guests of honour, including Brig-Gen. The Hon. C.G.Bruce, C.B., M.V.O., N.E.Odell, Lord and Lady Malcolm Douglas Hamilton (v. occ. spot, corners a trifle rubbed, else clean & bright indeed). On the upper panel are 18 signatures of the guests and FRCC club members in pencil and ink, including 'C.G.Bruce' (Everest 1922 & 1924), Ashley P. Abraham, C.Douglas Milner, W.Heaton Cooper, P.Wyn Robb, Charles G. Spence & H.Scott Tucker. A scarce item of ephemera in near fine condition, carrying several rare or unusual signatures. Charlie Bruce (known as 'Bruiser'), hard-drinking Himalayan veteran and larger-than-life leader of the 1922 expedition, was a fluent Nepali speaker who, both in 1922 and 1924, bridged perfectly the cultural divide between sahib and Sherpa. However, malaria forced him to relinquish his leadership of the 1924 expedition to Norton while he was still en route to the mountain. Bruce died following a stroke in 1939, the year after this dinner (Imaging Everest).. First Edition.
