color lithograph by James Lumbers of Sir Edmund Hillary limited edition, numbered 468 of 1953.
Printed Art signed: "Ed. Hillary" in pencil. Color, 31x25 overall, image 26x19 (one surface). Limited edition lithograph, numbered 468 of 1953. Embossed caption in lower margin: "Hillary Conquers Everest - May 29, 1953". ©1992, Seastone Enterprises. Also signed by the artist: "James Lumbers". On May 29th, 1953, EDMUND P. HILLARY (1919-2008) stood poised atop the highest mountain peak on earth (29,028 feet). Together, Hillary and a Sherpa mountaineer, Tenzing Norgay, as members of a British expedition, were the first men ever to surmount the forbidding Mount Everest of the Himalayas. As a result of his achievement, Hillary, the beekeeper from Auckland, New Zealand, was knighted Sir Edmund. In 1955, he published High Adventure, which detailed his climb. Hillary then guided a New Zealand group, in support of the British Commonwealth Trans-Arctic Expedition, to establish a base and lay out depots towards the South Pole, a grueling three-year ordeal ending successfully in March of 1958. In 1977, he led the first jet-boat expedition up the Ganges, eventually climbing to its source in the Himalayas. Hillary, since his Everest climb, has built hospitals, schools and raised funds for the Sherpa people. He was President of the Volunteer Service Abroad, a patron of the Race Relations Council and has been active in conservation campaigns. His autobiography, Nothing Venture, Nothing Win, was published in 1975. JAMES LUMBERS, born in 1929, is a well-known Canadian artist who specializes in realistic paintings, many reflecting historic Canadian and Commonwealth themes. Fine condition.
