Published by Faber and Faber, London, 1969, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Nr. Fine.   Regarded as the first full biography of George Mallory and perhaps the definitive one, written by Mallory’s son-in-law who had access to all of the family papers and was able to chronicle Mallory’s life “from boyhood in Cheshire and at Winchester, through the years from 1905 to 1909 at Cambridge and the years of schoolmastering at Charterhouse to a happy marriage, service in the First World War, and participation in the Everest Expeditions of the Twenties.”  It was the 1924 Everest Expedition on which Mallory, and his climbing partner, Sandy Irvine, lost their lives.  David Robertson was for several years co-editor of the American Alpine Journal.
