14 TITLE BOOK COLLECTION FOCUSED ON MOUNTAINEERING, NEPAL, HIMALAYAS, SHERPAS, BHUTAN, LHASA, ETC.

Offered is a great collection of books related to Nepal, Mountain climbing, and the history and region of the Himalayas.

This also, could be an opportunity for a dealer to fortify the 'mountaineering' or 'Nepal' section of their store.

This group was acquired from the estate of a gentleman who made numerous trips to Nepal and made two successful attempts at Everest in his lifetime. Over the course of 3 decades he amassed this collection of books.

This is one of several related lots I'm listing this week so, please track my other auctions and Ebay store to view the balance of the collection.
