This is an auction for LOST ON EVEREST: THE SEARCH FOR MALLORY & IRVINE, by Peter Firstbrook. review:

“On 8 June 1924 George Mallory and Andrew Irvine left their tent high on the slopes of Mount Everest and climbed into history. They were seen at 12:50 pm just 240 metres from the summit and 'going strong for the top'. Within minutes, Mallory and Irvine had disappeared in a snowstorm and were never seen alive again. What happened to these two pioneering climbers is the most famous mystery in the history of mountaineering. Since then there has been fierce debate over whether they were the first to reach the summit, 29 years before Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. In March 1999, an expedition primarily sponsored by the BBC climbed to the North Face of Everest. Their discoveries became front-page news around the world. This gripping story by film producer Peter Firstbrook fully explores the events leading up to Mallory and Irvine's historic attempt to reach the summit of the highest mountain in the world, giving a dramatic first-hand account of the 1999 search expedition. Firstbrook utilises his extensive historical research and the amazing evidence found in 1999 to piece together the final hours of the two brave heroes - George Mallory and Andrew Irvine."
