The two recent 'old' finds

Leading outdoors publisher Cicerone is appealing to enthusiasts to root around on their bookshelves for copies of any of the company’s old books.

Writing on the Cumbrian firm’s blog, Cicerone said: “We’re trying to compile a library of every Cicerone book published, and I’m constantly ferreting around in second hand bookshops looking for old copies.

“I struck lucky this weekend, and come across two first editions: Walks and Climbs in the Pyrenees, and Winter Climbs North Wales.

“Walks and Climbs in the Pyrenees, written by Kev Reynolds, is still in print today. Five editions later, a PVC cover, colour maps and more routes are included, but our commitment remains the same – to provide the best information possible for a great day out on the hill.

“If you have any early Cicerone guidebooks gathering dust on your shelves, we’d love to hear from you.”

The Milnthorpe-based publisher has a contact page on its website.

The firm was established more than 40 years ago by Walt Unsworth and Brian Evans to produce a climbing guide for the Lake District.

The company has been owned since 1999 by Jonathan and Lesley Williams.
