Through Tibet to Everest

Author(s): J.B.L. Noel


'This account of great enterprise is written primarily for those who are not ordinarily interested in mountaineering and Himalayan exploration.  In it I have tried to tell of the lure which led men to adventure in fascinating forbidden lands, and to the lofty summits of the world's highest mountain.  I have tried to write always from the human point of view; those who are interested in the scientific aspects, which I have deliberately only lightly touched upon, i refer to the admirable official accounts of the Everest Expeditions.'

Well illustrated with twenty-six decorative plates.

Some wear of boards, esp. around corners.  Heavy foxing of prelims, and sporadic foxing throughout.
