Millrace editions are without doubt the most classically beautiful books we publish. This is a brand new, pristine condition edition. Very difficult to print and publish books of this quality anymore while still making them affordable.
Excellent condition, hardback, with dust jacket, head and tail bands and coloured end papers.
From O G Jones and W P Haskett Smith to the modern guidebook, from early club articles to The Black Cliff, writing about the British hills has a long, varied and (mostly) honourable tradition. In A Rope of Writers Graham Wilson, mountain enthusiast, literature teacher and several-times author in the field himself, takes a shrewd, appreciative look at the genre. With characteristic idiosyncrasy, he leads the reader on a tour as diverse as the walks and climbs themselves, taking in essayists, fiction-writers, humorists, philosophers and even a hill fanzine, tracing the strands running through a century of mountaineering literature, and acknowledging the debt to those who went before.
