    Not technically a photo book but has some great photos of the team and environment taken with Kodak cameras. Good read. That goes into the equipment used, natural history, and geography. I would be interested in seeing how the cameras and film did at the higher elevation.

    Nice - thanks!

    The discovery, exploration, and attempts to reach the summit fascinate me.

    It's impressive how accurate the explorers were in their initial calculation of its height - from 100 miles away.

    Me too. I am reading Dan Simmon's The Abominable which takes place in 1925. Simmon uses real people and facts and that got me searching and I found this. If I come across a good book about the early expeditions I will let you know.
