Account of the 1958 Italian first ascent of Gasherbrum IV (K3), with excellent photos throughout. GIV, while barely under the 8000m mark at 7925m, is more difficult than some higher peaks and has seen few ascents. One of my favorites. This copy is signed by two of the most famous mountaineers in history – Walter Bonatti who, along with Carlo Mauri, made the first ascent and Riccardo Cassin, who led the expedtion.

Neate M47, Yak M80.
