The lower front flap of the dust jacket states "fourth printing", as the dust jacket was found separately. The fourth printing came out in February 1953.

Condition: Hardcover, dust jacket has edge wear, some chipping, and has been taped in several places mostly on the inside, some scuffing. Front inside cover has the previous owner's names (a couple who were well-traveled and hiked in the Himalayas themselves). Illustrated with photographs throughout. Includes a fold-out map: which first folds out to a panorama view of the Great Barrier Seen From Camp II, and then folds out again to the Sketch Map of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Massifs region explored by the 1950 expedition, prepared by Marcel Ichac and drawn by Lucien Dubresson, 1951. The back of the map has been taped on the back, as seen when map is folded, otherwise map is in very good condition. Interior of the book is clean and unmarked. Binding is firm.
