High Peak: The Story of Walking and Climbing in the Peak District

£60.00

Product description

High Peak: The Story of Walking and Climbing in the Peak District, by Eric Byne and Geoffrey Sutton. Foreword by Patrick Monkhouse. Published by Secker & Warburg, 1966.

A National Park today, the Peak is flanked on all sides by great industrial cities and provides a natural playground for open air pursuits. The events related by the authors present for the first time a complete and authoritative picture of walking and climbing in the High Peak. The work is supported by 30 years of research, a unique collection of photographic and written documents and the evidence of unequalled experience in the field and personal acquaintance with nearly everybody associated with the story. There is no doubt that it will remain a definitive work in its field, and it appears opportunely at the moment with exploration is nearing completion. (Source: flap text)

Hardback first edition from 1966. Overall good condition. Spine perfectly intact. Minor foxing/browning on some pages due to age. Some purple ink stains, as well as pencil markings throughout. All writing readable. Dust jacket in poor condition with large tears on front and back.
