The range of old books for sale here is probably the most extensive anywhere, especially Alpine classics written by early British mountaineers who formed and became the Alpine Club. Men such as Edward Whymper, Alfred Wills, T.W. Hinchliff.
Of all the Mont Blanc narratives A Narrative of an Ascent to The Summit of Mont Blanc 21st. September 1853 by John MacGregor was not published at the time and so I have recently privately published a limited edition of 200 copies which are complimented by fine art prints of the rare Baxter oil prints of the ascent.
Mount Everest Books and ephemera Mount Everest are also a speciality. Another mountaineering book which was not written in it's own time was that of the Mount Everest Reconnaissance 1935 led by Eric Shipton. This was corrected when I completed writing and privately published The Forgotten Adventure which won the coveted James Monroe Thorington Award for Best Book Mountaineering History at the Banff Mountain Festival 2006.
