In reply to Linda Orritt:

Out of interest what does "straight" signed by Cassin mean? I have a signed copy of the same book I bought when he did a lecture in Edinburgh in 1981.

In reply to Robert Durran:

It means It’s just his signature. It doesn't say ‘best wishes’ or to suchabody. Hope that explains it. 
it’s book speak - I’ve become a book person doing this volunteer fundraising! It’s very interesting though. I wish I had met Cassin

In reply to Linda Orritt:

> It means It’s just his signature. It doesn't say ‘best wishes’ or to suchabody. Hope that explains it. 

Thanks. Same as mine then.

> it’s book speak - I’ve become a book person doing this volunteer fundraising! It’s very interesting though. I wish I had met Cassin.

The lecture I went to was on one level very dull, with Cassin giving very matter of fact accounts through an interpreter. On the other hand I had to keep reminding myself hat I was listening to a God talking first hand about some of the greatest climbs in history!

In reply to Linda Orritt:

Tenzing Norgay After Everest and the signed post card now sold. Thank you
