Mountaineering Books for sale. Mountaineers have always written of their adventure in mountaineering books. Edward Whymper was the first to climb the Matterhorn. Paccard and Balmat reached the summit of  Mont Blanc in 1786. But it was Albert Smith who introduced the public to the wonders of mountaineering.  Before the formation of the Alpine Club he alone performed the Mont Blanc Sideshow until 1860, having  ascended the mountain in 1851. Mountain books from the Golden Age.

 The sometimes dangerous exploration of mountains and the history of mountaineering has been recorded in literature since the beginning and continues to this day. Many mountain books published over the years are available for sale here.  If you cannot find the mountaineering books that you are looking for me then please contact me.

Tony Astill proprietor and specialist dealer of mountaineering books and mountain paintings with over 40 years experience.

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.  

Here also is the largest selection of mountain paintings and mountain art for sale. All mountain ranges, from the Alps to the Himalaya, are represented. Mont Blanc and Chamonix, the Matterhorn and Zermatt, the Bernese Oberland, the mountains of North Wales, the Lake District and Scotland too, by artists E.T. Compton, Elijah Walton, J.-A. Linck, George Barnard, J. Bleuler, Gabriel Loppe, F. Sommer and many others.

Les Alpes Livres

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.
