Audrey has been involved with mountaineering books for a very long time, but has reluctantly decided to part with her own library.

Over the next few months, I shall be presenting various lists of her books for sale, but if you see any books which might be of interest among these images please let me know and I shall send further details.

Audrey Salkeld Mount Everest Mountaineering Books Library CLICK FOR LIST

Jill Neate was one of the foremost mountaineering historians and bibliographers. Her Mountaineering and it’s Literature became the internationally regarded authority on books about mountains and mountaineeering. Booksellers the world over identify books in their catalogues by their ‘Neate’ numbers.  Audrey Salkeld, 1993

And now it is my pleasure to present a selection of such books, a good few of which come from the mountaineering book library of ‘W.R. Neate’ and are so signed.

All of these books are from the library of Audrey Salkeld.
