Descripción:

EVEREST: The Unfinished Adventure. Hugh Ruttledge. Hodder & Stoughton, London. 1937 First Edition 288pp plus fold out maps and plates. Illustrated Hardback. This copy is bound in original blue cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine and blind borders to the upper board. There is a tiny sticker of the issuing bookseller (Widson of Bradford) to the foot of the front paste down. The text block is tight, bright, white and square. A dust wrapper is not present. Hugh Ruttledge (24 October 1884 – 7 November 1961) was an English civil servant and mountaineer who was the leader of two expeditions to Mount Everest in 1933 and 1936. With the near-universal support for his leadership on the 1933 trip, Ruttledge was selected to lead a second expedition (the sixth British expedition), which was the largest to date to attempt Everest. Alongside veterans of the 1933 expedition – Frank Smythe, Eric Shipton and Percy Wyn-Harris – team members were Charles Warren, Edmund Wigram, Edwin Kempson, Peter Oliver, James Gavin, John Morris and Gordon Noel Humphreys. William Smyth-Windham was again chief radio operator. Although the North Col was reached, a combination of high winds, storms and waist-deep snow made progress above 7,000 m difficult and, with the monsoon arriving early, Ruttledge called off the expedition. Tenzing Norgay wrote of Ruttledge and the 1936 expedition "Mr Ruttledge was too old to be a high climber, but he was a wonderful man, gentle and warm-hearted, and all the Sherpas were very glad to be with him. This was a very big expedition, with more sahibs than there had ever been before, and a total of sixty Sherpas, which was five times as many as in 1935". Ref S2 Size: 288pp Plus Maps and Plates.
