A Photographic Record of the Mount Shisha Pangma Scientific Expedition

Author(s): [China]

Copyright: 1966, Science Press, Peking
Specifications: 1st, 4to, [pp.86], 8 color & 87 bw (2 fldg) photos, map eps, white cloth

A large format photo account which includes the Chinese first ascent of Shisha Pangma (8013m) in 1964, the last of the 8000m peaks to be climbed. The large Chinese expedition placed 10 members on the summit. Although there were a number of articles at the time, this appears to be the only book-length account of this expedition in any language. A nice production with glossy, coated paper. This publication is much scarcer than the Mount Jolmo Lungma publication published eight years later. Rare. In English.

Neate C44.
