ANNAPURNA FIRST CONQUEST OF AN 8000-METER PEAK
BY MAURICE HERZOG
1953 PAPERBACK EDITION
ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR CLIMBING BOOKS OF ALL TIME
VERY GOOD READ
This is an early paperback printing of ANNAPURNA FIRST CONQUEST OF AN 8000-METER PEAK by Maurice Herzog. This book was published in New York by Popular Library Publishing in 1953. The book measures 175mm tall x 107mm, and has 254 pages +  pages of advertisements, 9 maps and diagrams. A classic among accounts of the first ascents of the highest peaks. This is a good read probably because of the author's romanticization of the account which is the main criticism of the book by mountaineering historians. Maurice Herzog, Louis Lachenal, Lionel Terray, Gaton Rébuffat, Ang-Tharkey, and Jean Couzy in action.
CONDITION: Original paperback. Minor crease to spine, no previous owner marks or writing on any pages, solid binding, clean. Price: $10.
