About This Item

London: Robert Hale Ltd, 1949. Hardcover. Good. 1953 Everest mountaineer George Band's own copy, good plus in green cloth with gilt titles and vignette to upper cover, spine creased with short tear to the cloth along the joint. An ex WH Smith library copy, foxing to the edges and extremities but internally fresh. Well illustrated by the author with photographs and attractive line drawings. From the collection of English mountaineer George Band, the youngest member of the team which successfully conquered Mount Everest in 1953. Band was President of the Mountaineering Club at Queen's College, Cambridge and his exceptional Alpine record caught the eye of John Hunt, who put him in charge of radio equipment on the expedition. Band's finest achievement was the first ascent of Kangchenjunga in 1955. He pursued a professional career in oil exploration but continued to climb and published several books on mountaineering. He was made an OBE in 2009. Good 1949
