Magnificently illustrated, this is the definitive book about the 4000m peaks of the Alps - the most recent and most successful edition of the book first written by Karl Blodig in 1923. Having retained its German character for seventy years it was given a broader European perspective with its first Diadem publication in 1993. At that stage the book was redesigned and greatly embellished with much additional history, anecdote, technical information and interesting action photographs. It has since been published in Germany, America, France, Spain, Italy and Poland and is regarded as a reinvigorated classic.
