THE ASCENT OF GASHERBRUM IV

BY FOSCO MARAINI

1961 FIRST EDITION

BONATTI AND MAURI ON TOP

RICCARDO CASSIN LEADER


This is the first printing of the first USA edition of KARAKORAM THE ASCENT OF GASHERBRUM IV by Riccardo Cassin. This book was published in New York by The Viking Press in 1961. The book measures 237mm tall x 169mm, and has 320 pages, 108 photos (57 in color), 6 appendices, 20 sketches, 4 maps + EP map, bibliography, index. Walter Bonatti and Carlo Mauri made the first ascent of this 7923m peak in June of 1958. Riccardo Cassin was the leader of this expedition and climbed high on the peak including partway up Gasherbrum III. A very well illustrated and written book. G-IV offers no easy way up, has been climbed to the top only a few times, & still poses some of the greatest unmet challenges of the Karakoram.
