A CLIMBER'S GUIDE TO YOSEMITE VALLEY

BY STEVE ROPER

1964 FIRST EDITION

THE CLASSIC EARLY CLIMBING GUIDE TO YOSEMITE


This is the first printing of the first edition of A CLIMBER'S GUIDE TO YOSEMITE VALLEY by Steve Roper. This book was published in San Francisco by The Sierra Club in 1964. This is an example of that 1964 first edition. This was the first major climbing guidebook to Yosemite Valley. Sources indicate that around 500 copies only were produced which explains why it is so uncommon (see Randy Vogel's book, THE CLIMBING GUIDEBOOKS OF THE UNITED STATES - PART I - CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA -- A Preliminary Bibliography and History of the Climbing Guidebook). The book measures 190mm tall x 125mm, and has 39 b/w photos (of climbers in action), sketches, index.

CONDITION: Original red cloth, black lettering front & spine, black decoration front & spine. Original dust jacket has 15mm deep loss around top of spine, smaller loss at base of spine, 1cm loss upper rear flap corner (note that the spine loss has been backed by loose -- not attached -- red construction paper under the glassine protective cover), general edge rubbing, some purple writing on upper part of inside front flap which appears to be offset from something that once had been inserted against the flap since the writing is in reverse. The book is in near fine condition with no previous owner marks or writing on any pages, clean covers, no rubbing, slight bump upper front outside corner causing a crease mark, tight binding with nothing loose or shaken, no foxing. Price: $145.
