198 editions published between 1931 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two almost exhausted men crept up a steep, wind-scoured slope of snow and reached a small level space. There they saw that there was nowhere higher to go. They were standing on the summit of the highest mountain yet climbed by man. Maurice Herzog was one of the two. He was the leader of the French Expedition to the Himalayas which was the first in the history of mankind to climb an 8,000 meter peak -- the magic goal of every mountaineer, -- by conquering Annapurna's 26,493 feet

Victoire sur l'Everest by John Hunt Hunt( Book )

10 editions published between 1953 and 1962 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1953, l'épopée de la montagne vient de connaître sa consécration. Avec la conquête de l'Everest (8810 mètres), la montagne la plus haute du monde, un mythe a disparu. Désormais, l'homme est maître de l'univers de l'altitude." C'est ainsi que Maurice Herzog, le célèbre alpiniste français, salua l'exploit de John Hunt, chef de l'expédition qui, durant plusieurs mois, avec des dizaines de sherpas et treize alpinistes anglais et néo-zélandais, s'attaqua au monstre. Le récit détaillé de cette première expédition victorieuse, après de nombreuses et infructueuses tentatives, apparaît comme un formidable récit à suspens et comme le témoignage d'une aventure de groupe et d'amitié.
