About This Item

First edition.

"Whilst we shall never know the last tragic moments of the 1982 British Everest Expedition's final assault, this book records the team's progress to the once Forbidden City of Lhasa, across Tibet and to the unknown North East Ridge. It is the personal story of Chris Bonington, the leader, and Charles Clarke the expedition doctor; redolent in climbing history, it tells of a close-knit team who lost cherished friends."

The dustcover is in very good condition, there is minor surface rubbing but no tears. The spine has some fading. There is a little wear at the crown of the spine.
The covers are black cloth covered board with the title in silver along the spine. There is minimal shelfwear and the slightest hint of fading along top margin.
The text is very clean with the very slightest ageing of the pages around the margins. There are no annotations or inscriptions.
There are numerous colour photos throughout the book, many full page, and there are maps on the endpapers. These are all in excellent condition.

We are happy to provide additional photos and information on request.
