Book Description

First edition. 8vo. pp. 247; photo. illusts., 2 folding maps, one sketch map to text; very good in the original cloth, in d.-w., which is worn and frayed with tape repairs to verso. A presentation copy, inscribed "John Lewis with best wishes from Eric Newby 25.3.59", with the dedicatee’s bookplate to front pastedown.
Dealer Notes
Newby’s story of his and Hugh Carless’ travels in Nuristan (North-east Afghanistan) includes an account of their failed ascent of Mir Samir. The relative inexperience of the two travellers provides many entertaining moments, nicely counterpointed by the final episode in the book - a chance meeting with the "English explorer" Wilfred Thesiger.
Author Newby, Eric.
