SOUTH COL

ONE MAN'S ADVENTURE ON THE ASCENT OF EVEREST, 1953

BY WILFRID NOYCE

1954 FIRST UK PRINTING

SIGNED BY WILFRID NOYCE & BY GEORGE LOWE ON THE TITLE PAGE


This is the first UK printing of SOUTH COL. ONE MAN'S ADVENTURE ON THE ASCENT OF EVEREST, 1953 by Sir Wilfrid Noyce. It was published in London by William Heinemann in 1954. The book measures 22cm tall x 137mm, and has 303 pages, 48 b/w & 4 colour plates, 5 maps, 15 drawings, index. This is among the best personal accounts of an Everest expedition, and the story of the first ascent of Everest. Noyce was a lead climber and the first on the team to reach the South Col. Wilfrid Noyce and Robin Smith were killed together in a fall on a peak in the Pamirs in 1962. Noyce's signature is less common than most of the signatures of the 1953 Everest team members. George Lowe led the carry to the highest camp (27900') on Everest and probably would have reached the summit if he had been given the chance. He was in excellent condition and climbing very strongly throughout the entire expedition.

CONDITION: Original blue cloth covers & spine, gilt lettering spine. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, WILFRID NOYCE, AND BY TEAM MEMBER GEORGE LOWE on the title page. DJ(2cm tear upper rear, 15mm tear upper spine crease, rubbed tips corners with tiny loss), usual light fading spine and very faint shadowing from DJ illustration, clean, tight binding, no foxing, no previous owner marks or writing on any pages, overall nice condition book. Price: $525.
