SNOW ON THE EQUATOR.

BY H. W. TILMAN

1940 BOOK CLUB EDITION

WITH ERIC SHIPTON ON MOUNT KENYA


This is the UK Book Club edition of SNOW ON THE EQUATOR by H. W. Tilman. It was published in London by The Travel Book Club in 1940. The book measures 223 tall x 143mm and has 265 pages, 18 b/w photos, and 4 maps. Account of author's climbing with Shipton on Mt Kenya, Kilimanjaro, and the Ruwenzori. Tilman's bicycle trip across Africa is also described. This is by far the least common of Tilman’s mountaineering books. It was his second book, published shortly after his classic account of the first ascent of Nanda Devi. This edition has 8 fewer photos than the first edition but otherwise has the same contents and is about the same size.

CONDITION:Original green cloth with black title patch spine. The original dust jacket (different from that of the first edition) is mostly complete but has edge rubbing, small loss at tips of corners, two 3cm tears along rear spine crease. The book is in very good condition with no previous owner names or marks on any pages, minor foxing opposite some of the photo plates, solid and tight binding. Price: $35.
