Description

Published by Orchid Press, Bangkok, 2002 (Reprint of the original 1st UK Edition of 1927), D/w (short tear top of front cover near spine), Nr. Fine.   David Pye was a contemporary of Mallory’s at Cambridge and climbed with him in Britain and in the Alps.  Though superseded by the David Robertson (Mallory’s son-in-law) biography in 1969, it remains a very personal and touching portrayal of one of the most enigmatic figures in mountaineering history from the only biographer to have known Mallory personally.
