This is an auction for THE MAN IN THE ICE: THE AMAZING INSIDE STORY OF THE 5000-YEAR-OLD BODY FOUND TRAPPED IN A GLACIER IN THE ALPS by Konrad Spindler.

"In 1991 a preserved corpse was found by chance in an Alpine glacier. Tests showed that this was the body of a Neolithic hunter who had died some 5300 years ago. This book sets out the results of the scientific investigations and provides clues to the nature of daily life in the late Stone Age."

From Wikipedia:

"On 19 September 1991, Ötzi was found by two German tourists from Nuremberg, Helmut and Erika Simon, at 3,210 metres (10,530 ft) on the east ridge of the Fineilspitze in the Ötztal Alps on the Austrian–Italian border, while walking off the path between the mountain passes Hauslabjoch and Tisenjoch. They believed that the body was of a recently deceased mountaineer. The next day, a mountain gendarme and the keeper of the nearby Similaunhütte first attempted to remove the body, which was frozen in ice below the torso, using a pneumatic drill and ice-axes, but had to give up due to bad weather. The next day, eight groups visited the site, amongst whom happened to be the famous mountaineers Hans Kammerlander and Reinhold Messner. The body was semi-officially extracted on 22 September and officially salvaged the following day. It was transported to the University of Innsbruck, where it was recognized to be primeval the same day . . . "
