Detailed Product Description
Boston and New York, 1893, 10th edition. 794 pp, illustrations, index. A Swiss zoologist who climbed the Jungfrau in 1841. TEG. Original dark blue cloth hardcover, no dust jacket, Near Fine. 

Perhaps scarce, as almost no copies other than POD are available on line in 2017.

"In this present volume I have not attempted an elaborate analysis of his life and its effect upon the scientific world, but rather a brief history of its salient features, an impression of the good he accomplished, hoping that younger readers, as well as those of mature years, may be tempted to emulate the lesson his life presents."
