The New Zealand Expedition to New Guinea’s highest mountains

by Philip Temple

The Travel Book Club, 1963, lightly illustrated with maps in text, hardcover, dustjacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, previous owners details stamp to front endpaper, dustjacket shows some edge and shelf wear with a little rubbing, bumping, chipping, and small tears (see photographs)

“This is the first account in English of a major mountain range in central New Guinea, and of the wild, mostly unexplored country surrounding it.  This formidable range is as long as the Himalayas (1,500 miles), and prior to 1961, the date of eh New Zealand expedition, only three attempts had been made to reach the glaciated snow peaks of Dutch New Guinea.
Philip Temple and five friends from New Zealand set off to attack the Carstensz, 16,500 feet and his book describes the Carstensz and its wild plateau and surrounding jungle.”
