Descripción

Early in 1936 an expedition to attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest left England. By April camps to support the expedition were being established, in mid-May a fourth camp was set up on North Col but was evacuated a few days later. On June 12 two clibers reached a high camp near the final slope of North Col and two days later another party was forced to abandon its effort to reach the North Peak. That ended what had been a well-organised expedition to conquer the highest peak. The author was a member of the expedition and compiled this detailed and extremely readable account of its experiences and adventures. Part one deals with the actual conduct and activities of the expedition while part two carries seven sections of observations, including weather, heatlh, physiology, oxygen and botanical and other specimens collected, two fold out maps and index follow to conclude the section. Part three , at the back is a portfolio of b/w photographs taken on the expedition, 63 plates in all each with a caption on the facing page, At front, before the title page are pencil portraits of leading expedition members by P R Oliver. Text block is 295 pages, followed by 126 pages of photographs, which are unpaginated. Blue hard covers with bright spine titles are VG with slight wear to corners spine extremities, 2cm wear patch at rear spine hinge near top, FFEP has section cut from top corner, 5cm deep by 9cm, ink name, etc below, front board a trifle loose , but firmly attached and no cracking at gutter, text block is otherwise excellent. Hint foxing vertical page edges as closed. Front section of original DJ, with horizontal tear, loosely enclosed.
