Nine Atop Everest, Story of the Indian Ascent. M. S. Kohli.

Nine Atop Everest, Story of the Indian Ascent

Bombay: Orient Longmans Limited, 1969.

First Edition. Hardcover. Good+ in a NONE dust jacket. 384 p, with 56 plates, some color. Binding tight and square, text unmarked. Dust jacket is edgeworn, with chipping and short tears, and is partially adhered to boards due to some old water-damage (not affecting text block). Kohli, a former officer in the Indian Navy and the Indo-Tibet Border Police, argues that the success of his expedition was due in large part to logistics--meticulous planning, procurement of high-altitude rations, manufacture of equipment to exacting specifications, packaging, and other details.
