Limited edition color satin-finish 14 x 11 photo of Hillary during his ascent to the top of Mount Everest, #3/10, signed in the lower border in blue felt tip, above a printed Hillary quote which reads “I was just an enthusiastic mountaineer of modest abilities who was willing to work quite hard and had the necessary imagination and determination. I was just an average bloke; it was the media that transformed me into a heroic figure. And try as I did, there was no way to destroy my heroic image. But as I learned through the years, as long as you didn't believe all that rubbish about yourself, you wouldn't come to much harm.” In very fine condition. R&R COA.
