Just as the English focused on Everest and the Germans on Nanga Parbat, so to did the Japanese focus on Manaslu. The Japanese Alpine Club made repeated visits to the mountain in 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955 and 1956. This profuse official report relates their reconnaissance in 1952 and attempt in 1953, reaching 7750m. Manaslu was the 8th 8000m peak to be climbed. This is a most-desireable work and is a matching volume to ‘Manaslu 1954-6’. In Japanese with a 17-page summary and several miscellaneous pages in English. Quite scarce.

Neate J16, Yakushi j525.
