REGARDS VERS L'ANNAPURNA

1951 SECOND EDITION

THE FIRST ASCENT OF ANNAPURNA

SIGNED BY THE SUMMITERS

MAURICE HERZOG AND LOUIS LACHENAL


This is the second edition (same format, size & contents as first edition) of REGARDS VERS L'ANNAPURNA by Maurice Herzog and Marcel Ichaq. This book was published on the 15th of May, 1951 by Arthaud in Paris. This book has been signed in blue pen by Maurice Herzog and by Louis Lachenal on the title page. Items signed by both of the summiters are very uncommon. The book measures 254mm tall x 193mm, and has 96 pages, 84 gravure photos of which 9 are in color, and a folding map not called for in table of contents or elsewhere. Text in french, no english edition. This is the photo book of the expedition that made the first ascent of Annapurna. There are only 10 pages of text + detailed photo captions at end. The photos illustrate well Herzog’s best-selling textual account in english, Annapurna First Conquest Of An 8000-meter Peak. Thirteen of the photos are by Rébuffat.

CONDITION: Professionally bound in 1/2 leather with compartmentalized leather spine and leather corners all with gilt trim, marbled boards with matching marbled EPs, gilt lettering spine. The original pictorial covers (front and rear, including the illustrated flaps) are bound inside with the rest of the book. Also, the normally loose folding map has been expertly bound into the book at the rear. This book is SIGNED on the title page by Maurice Herzog and by Louis Lachenal. Otherwise, there are no previous owner marks or writing on any pages. There is a chip with loss to the margin of the short-title page (see photos), no other chips or tears. No foxing, tight binding, clean. There is some very minor rubbing on the bottom edges of the boards and to the very tip of one corner. Generally, the book is in nice condition in an expensive binding compared to the original paperback binding. Price: $650.
