Published by Jonathan Cape, London, 1986, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine.   Despite Mallory’s body being found in 1999 by Conrad Anker, the mystery of whether George Mallory and Andrew ‘Sandy’ Irvine successfully made the first ascent of Everest in 1924, almost 30 years before Hillary and Tenzing, remains to this day. American mountaineer Tom Holzel and leading mountaineering historian Audrey Salkeld have drawn on wide-ranging sources, including new evidence at the time, to provide a dramatic re-creation of the 1924 attempt and provide some analysis of Mallory himself, his character and his motivation.
