Into Thin Air, A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster [SIGNED, WITH MOUNTAIN MADNESS MATERIALS LAID IN]

New York: Villard Books, 1997.

Hardcover. Fine in a Fine dust jacket. First printing. 293 pp, w/b/w photos, map endpapers, bibliography. Clean and tight, with minimal wear. Inscribed by Krakauer to a fellow climber "with the greatest respect and admiration," on the half-title page. Laid in are a full color brochure that unfolds to poster size (about 16 x 25 inches) from Scott Fischer's company, Mountain Madness, with text from Fischer describing the achievements of 1995 and advertising the 1996 climbing schedule (including the fateful Everest trip, about which he says "My personal goal for '96 is to have everyone reach the summit"), as well as a smaller tri-fold brochure advertising the company's local rock climbing expeditions for the same season. Although signed copies of this book are relatively common, these ephemeral items are not, nor are copies with a warm personal inscription.
