About This Item

London: Little Brown and Company, 2001. Soft cover. Fine. pp240 1953 Everest mountaineer George Band's own copy of a beautifully illustrated anthology with contributions from many great mountaineers including George Mallory, Tenzing Norgay, Peter Boardman and Chris Bonington. First published in 1993, this edition has been expanded to include the climbs of the 1990's. Fine in photographic wrappers with several post it notes annotated by George Band. A laid in letter from the Alpine Club Library reminds Band about a book he left behind the previous day. From the collection of English mountaineer George Band, the youngest member of the successful team which 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 Everest 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 all over the world. He served as president of the Alpine Club and the British Mountaineering Council, and published several books on mountaineering. He was made an OBE in 2009. Fine 2001
