BATURA GLACIER -- SHIMSHAL WATERSHED -- OVER 100 MILES ON GLACIERS


This is the first printing of the first UK edition of Among The Kara-Korum Glaciers In 1925 by Jenny Visser-Hooft. This book was published in London by Edward Arnold & Co. in 1926. The book measures 224mm tall x 153mm, and has 301 pages, 25 b/w photo plates, 2 maps, index. With 4 chapters by Ph. C. Visser on his explorations alone. Account of the authors’ 2nd Karakoram expedition joined by Baron van Harinxma Thoe Slooten & two Swiss guides, Franz Lochmatter & Johann Perren. Extensive glacier exploration (more than 100 miles travelled on glaciers) over unmapped areas, the main tributaries of the Hunza river in the western Karakoram: Pansu Gl, Batura Gl, Khunjerab valleys, Ghujerab watershed, Shimshal valley, Khurdopin Gl, Virjerab Gl, Yazghil Gl, Mulungutti Yaz Gl, etc. “Few expeditions have brought back so rich a harvest in so short a time.” K. Mason in Abode of Snow.

CONDITION: Original blue cloth with gilt lettering spine. This example is probably a former library book since there is a trace of a rubbed-out spine number (fairly hard to detect), and new endpapers have been inserted. There are no library marks or traces of library marks on any pages or plates. The covers are clean, spine faded as usual for this book, no foxing, bright pages, tight binding, no owner marks or writing on any pages. The new EPs are quality marbled paper. Complete with all pages and plates and the two maps (no marks on any of them). Overall a pleasing example (other than the rubbed-out spine number) of an increasingly rare book. Price: $175.
