Detailed Product Description

UK, 2012, 1st edition. 171 pp, 100+ b/w photos. This is a collection of superb Lake District photographs from the late Victorian/Edwardian era, of climbing and outdoor scenes, taken by Keswick's renowned climbing photographers, George and Ashley Abraham.

This book revives over 100 Abraham historical photographs of the Lake District, in large-format classic black and white. The Abraham brothers of Keswick were pioneer rock-climbers and professional photographers, whose mountaineering shots are known to all serious climbers. As well as the dramatic climbing shots, there are more gentle scenes of Grasmere and Derwentwater, sheep and shepherds, tarns, fells and launches...all seemingly unchanged in a century. Every exile from the Lake District will be transported back in time.
 
Reproduced with fresh clarity thanks to digital technology, the photographs have been painstakingly gathered from all quarters; from art galleries, private collections and libraries, as well as from hotels and even pubs. Their enduring quality will evoke nostalgia in all those who know them already, and will fascinate the young from all over the world as they discover this beautiful region for the first time.There is an introduction by Sue Steinberg, Ashley Abraham's granddaughter, who compiled this historic collection. New large format paperback, extra postage for Priority Mail or International Mail.
