British and Irish Climbing Guidebooks 1894 to 2011

A Collectors Guide by Alan Moss   £25 still available from BMC ??

The history of British climbing guidebooks is as long and as venerable as the history of climbing itself. The early pioneers of the sport, the tweed-clad Victorian cragsmen, were as concerned about recording their activities as they were about doing them and thus began the climbing guidebook. We now have over a century of the finest guidebooks in the world, a written heritage second to none.

To celebrate this heritage we now have the ultimate ‘guidebook of guidebooks’. British and Irish Climbing Guidebooks 1894 to 2011 lists over 1,000 guidebooks, from the simple recordings of the earliest pioneers to the latest photo and topo filled blockbusters. Front cover images and publication details for each title show the development of climbing guidebooks over the decades in a unique format. For anyone with an interest in how our sport has been recorded, from casual history lovers to serious collectors, this is an essential guide. The climbing guidebook of all climbing guidebooks!
