Four Against Everest

Woodrow Wilson Sayre

Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs New Jersey, 1984, First American Edition. One of the classics of mountaineering literature since four intrepid climbers attempted Everest without Sherpas, Porters, Permits, Permission, or really anything an expedition is supposed to need for the highest peak! Eric Shipton wrote to Sayre praising their accomplishment, saying he had ‘always been an advocate of lightweight expeditions’. Daring attempt, one which upset international relations. Ephemera included. Now a scarce, sought-after book. Dustjacket, Very Good.                                 $90
