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.

It was usual for the leader to write the expedition book, but one not written in it's own time was that of the Mount Everest Reconnaissance 1935 led by Eric Shipton. This was corrected when Tony Astill wrote and published the book of this ‘Forgotten Adventure’ which won the coveted James Monroe Thorington Award for Best Book Mountaineering History at the Banff Mountain Festival 2006.
Climbing Mount Everest became an obsession of the nation in the 1920's and when Mallory and Irvine lost their lives an inexhaustible interest was created about the highest mountain in the world, first ascended in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa.
