K2 – 1938

Author(s): House, William

Copyright: 1939
Specifications: AAJ extract, 8vo, pp.229-254, photo frontis, 22 bw photos, map, stapled wraps
Condition: inscribed ‘To (?) Baldwin from Bill Apr 1939’ & signed Robert H. Bates (on photo), name H. I. Baldwin on cover, fine

House and Bob Bates were both members of the First American Karakoram Expedition to K2 in 1938. The official account ‘Five Miles High’ is quite scarce as is this extract, especially signed. The Baldwin name on the cover is likely Henry Ives Baldwin (1896-1992) of New Hampshire. Both House and Baldwin went to Yale, both worked in forestry, and both were land surveyors in NH.
