Can I buy the Gaston Rebuffat book please
I can be flexible on price in these tougher times - especially with ‘gifted’ books as I will still make some money for Community Action Nepal. Please email me if you’re interested in any, looking for anything or want to do a deal? Thanks
Can I have:
Messner x14 8000m
Steve House Beyond the Mountain
Flammes de Pierre Anne Sauvy
Yes of course and thank you. Can you email me your address and I’ll send bank details and either post or deliver them for you.
May I take Chris Bonnington's Mountaineer please?
