James Morris: Coronation Everest (1958) - First edition signed RARE
1958. Faber and Faber. First edition, first impression, signed by author (as Jan Morris). The price-clipped dust wrapper has a chip at the top of the spine, edge wear and bumped corners - see photos. It is in better condition than the few others available online. There are faint fox spots on the initial pages and thereafter the tightly bound 156 pages are spick and span. Jan Morris has made a very nice confident signature on the title page and James' tale of the dramatic first ascent of Everest captured the world's headlines when first reported. A super example of this first edition. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: domtomm [Sutton, United Kingdom]
