Detailed Product Description

New York, 1914, 1st edition. 439 pp, 219 ills, maps. The Canadian classic on the Selkirks; considered the principal work on the Range. Includes a very scarce dust jacket. The DJ has faded from green to yellow on the spine but is virtually unchipped. 

An American, Howard Palmer climbed widely in the Selkirks in the company of E.W.D. Holway.The two did much of the early exploration in the Selkirks from 1908 to 1912, completing the first ascent of Mount Sir Sandford, the highest mountain in the Selkirk Range. These trips involved incredible struggles through devil's club and other thick underbrush in order to reach their objectives. Following his years in the Selkirks, Palmer climbed extensively in the Canadian Rockies, often with J.W.A. Hickson and was involved in twelve first ascents.

Like many of the other early mountaineers, Palmer had a wide variety of interests. He was said to be an authority on Capt. Cook's voyages and was an expert in the repairing of antique clocks, having over one hundred in his collection. Mount Palmer in the Sir Winston Churchill Range was named in his honour.

* Samuel Livingston Mather was a wealthy industrialist in Cleveland Ohio. His family is well known in colonial times. His ancestors include father and son Increase Mather and Cotton Mather, who were influential in causing the Salem Witch Trials to occur in the 1600s. 126 people were accused of witchcraft and 20 were executed.

Large book; extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
