View from the Summit signed by Sir Edmund Hillary 1st / 1st 1999
First UK edition and first print published by Doubleday in 1999. This is a very good ++ copy. The wrapper is in very complete condition and hasn't been price clipped. There is very minor wear to the top of the spine. There has been no fading to the colour on the spine or any of the panels. Two of the corners of the books are rubbed. There is no previous owners ink inside. The pages have started to brown with age. Overall a very good ++ copy that has been signed by Sir Edmund Hillary to the title page without dedication.
Autobiography of Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man ever to set foot on the summit of Mount Everest. Hillary looks back on that 1953 landmark expedition, as well as explorations in other exotic locales, from the South Pole to the Ganges.
