  1. 1928. The former glaciation of the East Lidar valley, Kashmir. Memoirs of the Geological Survey of India, Vol. 49.
    If you can help me in getting this journal.

  2. I need the paper,Verma. B.S 1977.‘Excavations at Antichak’, Journal of the Behar Pruavid Parishad 1:192-201. Could you help me? Thanks a lot.

  3. Sir,
    In Journal, Asiatic Society of Bengal, Vol. LXI, Part-I for 1892 (published 1893), there are TWO very interesting MAPS in the Paper by Major H.G. RAVERTY on THE MIHRAN OF SIND. The Two Maps are included as PLATE-IX and PLATE-X (both after p.221). Unfortunately, these Maps are not included in the pdf Copy of the Journal.

  4. Sir,
    we have the Alpine Journal upto 1921 but the 3 indices list writings in later volumes as well. Would you be considering adding the later volumes as well?

    • Dear Anindya, you’re asking a good question. On we have the Alpine Journal volumes from 1864 (vol 1) to 1921 (vol 33) plus some indexes. Then on the Alpine Club website one can find the volumes from 1930 to the present. Thus there is a small gap from 1922 to 1929 that ought to be filled up. We have been thinking to fill this gap for a long time, but there are always other, higher priorities. So for now, please check the Alpine Club website for the more recent volumes, and I hope we can soon fill the gap you have mentioned. Regards, MCADDeditor

      • – AJ vol. 35 (1923) would be very Welcome!
        (I particularly need a paper by Tod-Mercer in the issue 227 (1923) p.152 and no library in Italy has those old volumes).
        Any plan to upload some issues past 1921?

        Thanks anyway for your effort and massive archive!

          • Hi MCADD Editor, I’d really appreciate if you could do that!
            It should be about 9-10 pages only, looking at Google’s Books “excerpts”.
            Take your time, there’s no hurry.

            “Some Scrambles on the Lactarius Mons”, by. J.L. Tod-Mercer, in JA 35, 1923, pp 152 ff.

            Thank you!

  5. In a TheHindu article namely “Askot-Arakot Abhiyan a study of changes in Uttarakhand” dated 12 July, 2014, (link:
    the article had ended with the announcement by Shree Shekhar Pathak ji, “All the participants would compile the collected data which would later appear in the journal Pahar, Mr. Pathak said.”
    So i wanted to ask the MCADD editor that where I can find this data? Was it even published to begin with?
    Thank you.

  6. I am a student of history with a keen interest in the Himalayas and people for whom it is home. All i have to say is a big thank you for this great selfless act of putting all this material at one easily accessible place. It is of tremendous value for researchers like me and i would be happy to contribute to this process if there is a possibility.

  10. Could you please upload the annual magazine “pahar” published by you.
    Could you please also upload the book Pathar aur Pani by Sh Netra Singh Rawat.

  11. Thank you very much for uploading valuable old references. Excellent collections for researchers and mountaineers. If possible, could you please upload old volumes of Record of The Geological Survey of India prior to 1947?

  12. What a site. Only people like you and organisations like Pahar can do that. Why don’t you think about the contemporary photos?-

    • We have tried to focus this site on old and out-of-date materials that are the most difficult to find and access–generally materials prior to 1947, with a few exceptions. Are there particular journals you would like to see updated? We probably can’t go to current date due to copyright restrictions, but some updating might be possible. Please advise. MCADDeditor

  13. very good work done i got idea from DD National Channel Professor Shekhar pathak was in interviw. Proffessor is very intelligent and gave great presentation. I have also constructed 100 buildings with mud and all are solar passive in Kaza Spiti himachal lot of work still need to be done to conserve ecology of himalyas by building solar passive housing only.

  14. This collection is incredible. Thanks so much for all the effort you guys have put into it.

    If you are looking for any other journal titles to add, Central Asian Review was an excellent serial published from 1953-1968. Geoffrey Wheeler, who frequently contributed to Royal Central Asian Society Journal, was the editor-in-chief.

  15. Thank you for putting up these rare, valuable and classic collections of books, journals, maps etc and specially for making it available for us. It is of great help for young researchers like us. Great collection.
