The Mount Everest Recconnaissance Expedition 1951 by Eric Shipton.

In 1953 Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mount Everest. They climbed from the south, from Nepal, via the Khumbu Glacier - a route first pioneered in 1951 by a reconnaissance expedition led by Eric Shipton. Everest 1951 is the account of this expedition.

A hardback book in good condition for its age with some foxing (produced in 1953).
