Hunt, John; Edmund Hillary; Wilfrid Noyce; Mike Westmacott; George Band; Michael Ward; Charles Wylie and George Lowe.
Scarce original program for the Ascent of Everest, signed by eight members. Quarto, original illustrated wrappers, illustrated, route map inside the front pastedown. Signed on the front panel by E. P. Hillary and also signed by expedition leader John Hunt, members Wilfrid Noyce, Mike Westmacott, George Band, Michael Ward, Charles Wylie and George Lowe. On their return to Britain, members of the successful Everest expedition under John Hunt appeared before the Queen and a large audience at the Royal Festival Hall. The event, a Gala Premier Lecture held jointly by the R.G.S. and the Alpine Club, took place on Tuesday 15th September 1953, at 8pm. This is a program for that event. It contains a foreword by Prince Philip, an introduction by the Presidents of the Alpine Club and the R.G.S., and text by Wilfrid Noyce. In near fine condition. A remarkable collection of signatures.
