Detailed Product Description
The Wide World Magazine, 1898. Excerpt of a 6-page article with 8 photos. New paper binding, Fine

From the article's introduction: "A stirring account of an ascent to the very summit of the gigantic Mexican Volcano, and dealing at length with the hardships incidental to such a fine climb, and the sublime views from the snowy summit." 

Until the recent volcanic activity on Popo it was a popular and relatively safe and easy snow climb, and a good way to get high altitude experience if one is conditioning for McKinley, Aconcagua or the Himalaya. 

Popocatpet is the second highest peak in Mexico, after Citlaltpetl (Pico de Orizaba) at 5,636 m (18,491 ft). Until recently, the volcano was one of three tall peaks in Mexico to contain glaciers, the others being Iztaccihuatl and Pico de Orizaba. In the 1990s, the glaciers such as Glaciar Norte (North Glacier) greatly decreased in size, partly due to warmer temperatures but largely due to increased volcanic activity. By early 2001, Popocatpetl's glaciers were gone; ice remained on the volcano, but no longer displayed the characteristic features of glaciers such as crevasses. The first recorded European ascent of the volcano was made by an expedition led by Diego de Ordaz in 1519.

This appears to have been printed separately from the magazine in which it first appeared, and had not been cut out form a magazine.
