Detailed Product Description
London, 1867, first edition. 360 pp, 10 maps. This first edition was limited to 200 copies, making this a scarce book. Along with Scrambles Amongdt The Alps and Playground of Europe, this is one of the major classics of early Alpine climbing. Moore climbed with Whymper and Walker in 1864, and later did the 1st ascent of the Brenva ridge on Mont Blanc. The 1st edition was

This copy is a hardcover, bound in its original green cloth, with bright gold spine lettering and decoration. The interior has no writing and no mentionable flaws. The exterior is bright and clean, with the slightest rubbing on the corners. The book is really Fine. Somebody took loving care of this book for 150 years!

Moore made a first ascent during his first visit to the Alps in 1862 and immediately became a central figure in the golden age of alpinism. Moore's first ascents include:

23 July 1862: Fiescherhorn (Bernese Alps) with H. B. George and the guides Christian Almer and Ulrich Kaufmann
25 June 1864: Barre des crins (Dauphin Alps) with Edward Whymper and Horace Walker, and the guides Michel Croz, Christian Almer the elder, and Christian Almer the younger.
28 June 1865: Piz Roseg (Bernina Alps) with Horace Walker and the guide Jakob Anderegg
6 July 1865: Ober Gabelhorn (Pennine Alps) with Horace Walker and Jakob Anderegg
9 July 1865: Pigne d'Arolla (Pennine Alps) with Horace Walker and Jakob Anderegg
15 July 1865: Brenva Spur on Mont Blanc with George Spencer Mathews, Frank Walker and Horace Walker, and the guides Jakob Anderegg and Melchior Anderegg.

This last route, the Brenva Spur, was the first to be climbed on the remote southern side of Mont Blanc and exceeded in difficulty anything that had thus far been attempted on the mountain. Moore's description of the Brenva ascent is, according to Claire Engel, 'amongst the finest Alpine tales in existence'.

Moore went to the Caucasus with Douglas Freshfield and Charles Comyns Tucker in 1868, making the first ascent by a non-native of Mount Elbrus (the lower of the two summits), the highest mountain in the Caucasus,and the first ascent of Kazbek with the same party.
