Description:

Translated from the German by Hugh Merrick. "In this book Heinrich Harrer, who with Andreas Heckmair, Ludwig Vorg and Fritz Kasparek succeeded in making the first ascent in 1938, unfolds the history of the Eiger's North Face, from the first encounter of a climber . to the disaster of 1957 and the thirteenth successful climb of the Face in 1958." Blue cloth with silver titling on spine, upper text block edge is blue, illustrated with black and white photographs - one of which is a fold-out map photograph, a few photographs in colour and one black and white map at front, 240 pages. Spine ends have minor wear, text block edges slightly darkened, bottom text block edge has some small dark spots, occasional marks in text. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has edge wear with chipping and closed tears - one of which is one-inch; shelf wear most significantly on back, several small dark spots on or near spine, spine is very slightly sunned. In spite of flaws listed, this is a handsome book - bright and tight. Shipping charges are calculated for a standard parcel under 1 kg.
