The Tilman Books!

Born in 1898, Harold William “Bill” Tilman was a mountaineer and sailor who became one of the foremost British explorers of the 20th Century. After serving in the First World War, Tilman worked in Africa where he began climbing with his mountaineering partner Eric Shipton, traversing Mount Kenya and climbing Kilimanjaro. In 1936 Tilman climbed Nanda Devi in the Himalayas – the highest mountain to be climbed until 1950, and explored the remote Assam Himalaya and Afghanistan. As a sailor, Tilman was able to access remote mountains in Patagonia, Greenland and the Southern Ocean from his pilot cutter. These attractive editions are the first time that the individual expeditions have been published since their original release.
