Published by Werner Laurie, London, 1955, 1st UK Edition, slight fading spine, No D/w, V.G.   Very good history of all attempts on the 8,000 metre peaks by the German-Swiss Dyhrenfurth who led the 1930 International Kanchenjunga Expedition, amongst others.  Originally published in Germany in 1952, this UK edition also covers both the Swiss Everest Expeditions of 1952 and the successful British Everest Expedition of 1953. Excellent Himalayan reference work, also including a listing of 7,000 metre peaks ascended to date and a useful bibliography.
