THE ASCENT OF RUM DOODLE - W.E. Bowman - Max Parrish, London, First UK edition, 1956, Hardback, in scarce dustjacket. Time-honoured classic of the first ascent of Rum Doodle, in the fashion of the true mountaineering epics of the 1950s. A parody of the Himalayan expedition stories documenting the ascent of Rum Doodle, estimated at somewhere around 40,000 feet, complete with confessions about the mountaineers' failures at romantic relationships, horrible camp cooking, lousy navigation and all the physical hardships of mountaineering at impossibly high elevations. Illustrations mainly from magazines/books of the day By far the best copy I've had for sale $NZ145
