'An account of the most interesting features presented by the Alps from several points of view, and an account that is based on the personal experiences of over forty years' wandering through almost every district of this great chain.' Blue hardcover with gilt decoration. No dust jacket, Near Fine.  See below.



This copy has a printed presentation card from the author pasted on the front endpaper (with handwritten additions) that reads: 'With Rev'd W.A.B. Coolidge's compliments.' Also includes copies of 1908 reviews from newspapers and a corrected draft of a review by 'J.G.' for the Yorkshire Ramblers' Club Journal. The corrections may be in Coolidge's handwriting. See below.
 
In the early chapters the Alps are looked on from the physical side, then we come to man in the Alps. An attempt has been made to trace out the political or territorial history of the chief summits of the Alps. In later chapters man is considered in his relation to the principal passes across the Alps and as the explorer of the innermost recesses of the High or snowy Alps, this entailing notice of the guides through whose effort and loyalty the High Alps were finally conquered. There are impressions made at different seasons and finally the Alps hitherto looked on as a whole are considered in detail as forming twenty groups with diverse characteristic features.
