Everest : the man and the mountain by J. R Smith( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mount Everest is known to everyone - but what of the person after whom it was named? This book traces the life and profession of that person, George Everest, and in particular covers his life dedicated to surveying in India during the first half of the 19th century." "George Everest went to India at the tender age of 16 but within a few years was leading survey parties into the remotest areas of the subcontinent. His particular passion was geodesy - the determination of the size and shape of the earth. He soon became Superintendent of the Great Trigonometrical Survey and spent many years as Surveyor General of India." "The entire work draws heavily on original correspondence archived in India and gives a good flavour of his character both as a person and as a manager. Everest was a surveyor, linguist, engineer, astronomer and religious philosopher but in the pursuit of his goals he did not suffer fools gladly. It was recorded that he was so indefatigable - his determination to complete his appointed task under extreme conditions was second to none - that his contemporaries were accustomed to speak of him as Neverrest."--BOOK JACKET
