Detailed Product Description
Germany, 1882, 1st edition. 244 pp, with color plates. In German. Original red cloth hardcover with Gold lettering and black cover and spine designs. Near Fine  condition.

Spiritual mountain symbolism by the founder of the Blankenburger Alliance Conference Anna Thekla von Weling (1837-1900), who had to disguise her extensive literary work with the male pseudonym Hans Tharau. The annual Blankenburger Alliance Conference was a germ cell of the larger German Evangelical Alliance.

The book is divided into the following chapters: Mountains as Revelation Sites of Jehovah; Historic Mountains; Symbolic Mountains; Mountains that Entered His foot; The Mountains of the Apocalypse.

With beautiful atmospheric color images, with tissue guards, by Helga von Cramm: Sunrise on the Rigi, The Bernese Oberland, The Matterhorn, The Virgin, Sunrise on Mont Blanc and a unnamed glaciated peak (possibly Mont Blanc) on the frontispiece entitled I Raise My Eyes To The Mountain.
