Detailed Product Description
London, 1912, 1st edition. 307 pp, 16 b/w photos, index. Green hardcover with faded spine and no dust jacket. Very Good overall.

Interesting anecdotes from the climbing career of William Augustus Brevoort Coolidge [1850 - 1926], the American alpinist who moved first to England and then to Grindelwald. A little late to the climbing scene in the Alps, he nevertheless made several first ascents in the Alps during the 'silver age' of Alpinism, most notably that of Piz Badile when just 17. [Neate C126.] 
 
Contents include: A. Climbing - Recollections of my Journey in the Maritime Alps (1879), Chambeyron District, Monte Viso, Ascent of the Meije (1878), First Ascent of Les Bans, Wetterhorn & Jungfrau in Winter, Schreckhorn in Winter, Grindelwald, Tschingel (1865-1879); B. History of the Alps (St. Théodule Pass, Early Attempts on Monta Rosa From the Zermatt Side (1848-54), Matterhorn ); C. Subalpine (Driving Tour Through Pastoral Switzerland (1905), Interlaken).
