Detailed Product Description
London, 1967, 1st UK edition. 192 pp, 38 b/w illustrations, bibliography, index. Original blue cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Book is fine. Near Fine.

The story of one of the greatest showmen of the 19th century, including his ascent of Mont Blanc. 
 
In 1851 he ascended Mont Blanc, and the year after produced at the Egyptian Hall a descriptive entertainment, which he called ''Mont Blanc,'' describing the ascent of the mountain and the Englishman abroad. Smith's Mont Blanc show ran for 2000 performances over six years and helped to popularize mountain climbing in mid-Victorian Britain. He was one of the founder members of the Alpine Club in 1857. Smith traveled to Hong Kong in 1858 and followed his Mont Blanc entertainment with a similar show about the overland route to China between 1858-1860.
