John, I have this book since about two years. One of the best landscape books I ever bought. Made me want to sign up for an extended trekking tour of the Himalayas with my camera right away - that camera being a 4x5 and with film instead of glass plates it should be childs play in comparison! I do think that the financial backing by the Duke and others (translate that into a sufficient number of porters) probably helped, but that was again offset by the different mountaineering equipment of the time.
