South Col Signed by Wilfrid Noyce with signed Order of Service 1st
First edition published by Heinemann in 1954. This is a very good copy. The is some chipping to the top of the spine of the jacket. The spine is a shade browned. There is light wear to the corners. The jacket hasn't been clipped. The book has some light wear to the spine and ends. The book has no ink or foxing marks. Overall a presentable copy.
The book has been signed by the author and 1953 team member Wilfrid Noyce on the title page without dedication. In addition the book comes with an Edmund Hillary order of service signed by the then remaining expedition team members George Lowe, Alf Gregory, George Band and Mike Wesmacott. The booklet was signed through The Himalayan Trust when George Band was its chairman. It is rare to find the book signed along with the multi signed order of service.
