Maurice Herzog Signed Book - "Annapurna"
French mountaineer, Herzog became, on June 3 1950, the first person to climb a peak over 8000 meters when, in the company of Louis Lachenal, he summited Annapurna, 10th-highest mountain in the world.
Hardcover book "Annapurna" by Maurice Herzog, 1953, 5th printing, E.P. Dutton & Co., NY. While this is a common book in a later edition, this particular copy is made special by Herzog's highly uncommon signature on the half-title page: "Maurice Herzog Annapurna, 3 Juin 1950 (8075m.)"
Most of Herzog's autographed books do not contain his full name signature and this is the only copy of "Annapurna" where we have seen him add his ascent date
In very good condition, previous owner's name and address on FFEP, DJ chipped
