In 1962 eight Swiss mountaineers formed the Swiss Spitsbergen Expedition. Their plan was to climb on the northern part of that Arctic island, in mostly unexplored territory. Instead of using sled dogs, they used skis on the long approaches to the mountains and covered 1,250 miles altogether. Hugo Nunlist was with that expedition and relates here their adventures. Climbing in teams, they conquered many new peaks, and produced much valuable cartographical material. Bookseller Inventory # 001096

Item Description: Michael Joseph Ltd, London, 1959. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First published in Germany in 1957, and in the UK in 1958, this is a second UK impression of 1959. Edge wear, chipping and minor loss to top and bottom of jacket and spine, jacket still bright red and unsunned, not price clipped (21s), previous owner's inscription in ink to fep, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg copy, now in protective film wrapper. 282pp, lavishly illustrated. Anna Anderson (1896-1984), was the best known of several impostors who claimed to be Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia. The real Anastasia, the youngest daughter of the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia, Nicholas II and Alexandra, was killed along with her parents and siblings on 17th July 1918 by communist revolutionaries in Ekaterinburg, Russia; but the location of her body was unknown until 2008. In 1927, a private investigation funded by the Tsarina's brother, Ernest Louis, Grand Duke of Hesse, identified Anderson as Franziska Schanzkowska, a Polish factory worker with a history of mental illness. After a lawsuit lasting many years, the German courts ruled that Anderson had failed to prove she was Anastasia, but through media coverage, her claim gained notoriety. After the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union, the locations of the bodies of the Tsar, Tsarina, and all five of their children were revealed and multiple laboratories in different countries confirmed their identity through DNA testing. DNA tests on a lock of Anderson's hair and surviving medical samples of her tissue showed that Anderson's DNA did not match that of the Romanov remains or that of living relatives of the Romanovs. Instead, Anderson's mitochondrial DNA matched that of Karl Maucher, a great-nephew of Franziska Schanzkowska. Most scientists, historians and journalists who have discussed the case accept that Anderson and Schanzkowska were the same person. Bookseller Inventory # 001808
