Photographs from the French expedition of 1950 which was the first to successfully climb Annapurna I. Introduced by Maurice Herzog, leader of the expedition. Text in French. No d'edition - 515
Signed on the half title by Ichac, Herzog and a third person, presumably another member of the expedition. Ichac signs it to Emlyn Jones. Jones was a member of the British expedition led by H.W. Tilman, which was in the Annapurna range at the same time. Herzog's inscription, , also presumably to Jones, reads "A mon 'confrere' de l'Himalaya - que j'ai failli rencontrer ... a Managboth!" (a village in the Annapurna range". The third inscription also mentions a failure to meet up in Manangboth - we are unable to decipher the signature.
