Everest: by 'Those Who Were There' - Exhibition Catalogue

The Everest expeditions of 1921, 1922 and 1924 were incredible feats of human ingenuity, vision and personal courage. 100 years on from the exploratory expedition of 1921, the Alpine Club marked this remarkable undertaking with an exhibition that comprehensively examined the 1920s expeditions, using the words of the expedition members themselves and never-before-seen artefacts to tell the complete story of early Everest exploration. The exhibition catalogue, compiled by the Alpine Club's Honorary Librarian Barbara Grigor-Taylor and designed by Abrahams, offers a detailed and compelling companion piece to the exhibition.
