This item is provided by Thom Davis, fellow mountaineer and bibliophile. Thom and I have obtained Bob and Charlie’s signatures on these books, with the agreement that all proceeds will be donated to the American Alpine Club Library in their names. We only have a few copies of each so don’t miss this opportunity to acquire signed copies of one of mountaineering’s finest books by two of mountaineering’s finest people. See also #19738 for the related title 'Five Miles High'.
