About This Item

London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1937. First edition. Hardcover. Very good overall. Bright copy of Hugh Ruttledge's personal account of the incompleted second British Everest Expedition; the ascent was stopped by an early monsoon. The volume in three parts, the first is composed of recollections, while Part II is comprised of detailed observations on health, physiology, collecting flora & fauna, etc.; Part III is a wonderful photographic portfolio.

Royal 8vo, 288 pp, two fold-out maps at rear, one in color, with 63 photographic plates at the rear. 7 pages of portraits of members of the expedition, from the original pencil sketches by P.R. Oliver. Original blue cloth with gilt titles at spine. Mostly bright, with spine lightly sunned, still a bright, clean copy.
