BY GEORGE MEYERS
1982 FIRST EDITION
THE FIRST WIDELY ACCESSIBLE TOPO GUIDE TO THE VALLEY
This is the first printing of the first edition of YOSEMITE CLIMBS by George Meyers. This book was published in Denver by Chockstone Press in 1982. The book measures 236mm tall x 158mm, and has 260 pages + , 22 b/w photo plates, many route topos, list of first ascent information, index to route names, EP map. This was the first guide to Yosemite climbs using topos that was easily obtainable. Meyers and others had produced earlier topo guides to climbs in Yosemite, but these were very limited in quantity and hard to acquire. Being ring-bound on large paper, these earlier guides quickly became picked apart with many pages missing. This 1982 guide was the first firmly bound, sturdy guide to Yosemite using topos.
CONDITION: Original yellow coated hardcover with metallic blue lettering front & spine. Clean, unworn example, no previous owner marks or writing on any pages, probably never used or reada. Fine condition. Price: $40.
