Wikipedia:
Monte Rosa is a mountain massif located in the eastern part of the Pennine Alps. It is located between Switzerland (Valais) and Italy (Piedmont and Aosta Valley). Not far from the Matterhorn. Monte Rosa is the second highest mountain in the Alps and western Europe.

From the Edinburgh Encyclopedia Baron Welden, an enterprising German conceived the design of describing the topography, the orometry, the geology, the natural history and the botany of this mountain, and he has executed this design with great ability in his work Der Monte-Rosa. Eine Topographische und Naturhistorische Skizze.

This book contains accounts of the journeys made by Mr. Zumstein to climb the Monte Rosa. With biographies of Baron Welden, written Georg Schenk of Laupheim, Hannes Schmidt from the Botanical Wochenblatt, by Karl Ormar of ,Aretin, Georg Schenk of Laupheim, Hannes Schmidt from the Botanical Journal of the Week, Prof. von Wurzbach by the Biographical Lexicon of the Empire of Austria, and Dr. Fürnrohr of the magazine Flora.
