A scarce signed copy of arguably one of the most important and land-breaking books in the history of mountaineering. Herzog's account is a very engaging and compelling read, vividly written and translated from the French. Herzog was the leader of the French Himalayan expedition, which was the first in history to scale an 8000 meter peak. He made the climb without oxygen but lost several of his fingers, which had to be amputated without anesthetic, and he endured other harrowing hardships.
