26 Nasht Simon
No More Beyond. The Life of Hubert Wilkins
Birlinn, 2006 First Edition UK, hardcover, 346pp, hardback, Fine in near Fine dustwrapper.. Aviator, war hero, explorer, reporter, prolific writer, spy, scientist and naturalist, Hubert Wilkins, 1888-1958, was the most remarkable explorer of the twentieth century. The only Allied war photographer to be decorated in battle, he was also the first man to fly in the Antarctic and to navigate a submarine under polar ice. He survived crashes and disasters, firing squads, sabotaged expeditions and even capture by Arab slavers, living long enough to be honoured by kings, presidents and dictators. Equally remarkable, however, is the fact that the man who discovered more previously unchartered land and sea than anyone before or since has remained so little known, even in his native Australia. In this highly acclaimed and extensively researched biography, Simon Nasht redresses this imbalance as he details the astounding exploits and tenacity of this extraordinary person., 63695.

27 Norton Hugh
Norton of Everest. The biography of E.F. Norton, soldier and mountaineer (Limited Edition)
Vertebrate Publishing, 2017 First Edition (Limited Edition), hardcover, 183pp, hardback, New in dustwrapper. No.7 of only 100 cloth bound special First Edition copies, signed by Hugh Norton.. Norton lived a life of distinction in the declining years of the British Empire. Born into an accomplished, well-travelled family, he followed his heart and enlisted for a professional career as a soldier. A distinguished military career followed, punctuated with indulgences in his passion for exploration and mountaineering. His leadership ability was rapidly recognised and he progressed through the ranks. He was abruptly assigned the post of acting governor of Hong Kong, entrusted to save the civilian population from imminent Japanese invasion. The 1924 Everest expedition also exemplifies the pattern of having had leadership thrust upon him, in this case when General Charles Bruce was struck down by malaria on the approach march. Norton set an altitude record for climbing on Everest without supplementary oxygen. Yet tragedy would follow Norton's achievement, when George Mallory and Andrew Irvine disappeared high on the mountain. This is a fascinating biography written by Hugh Norton's son., 49247.
