The Story of British Climbing

By Simon Thompson

In stock


Published by Cicerone Press, Cumbria, 2010, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine – but contains occasional pencil annotations from someone who doesn’t always agree with the author!    The story of British Climbing from the Golden Age of Alpine climbing in the 1850’s into the 21st Century.  With the vast spread of the book, it provides a useful summary, but relies entirely on published material rather than first-hand research, and hence there are errors, along with some interpretations with which not all will agree.  Good select bibliography.
