Detailed Product Description
Innsbruck, Edlinger's Verlag, 1908, 4th edition. 348 pp, 56 b/w illustrations (woodcuts) and 5 b/w photo plates. In German. Pictorial green canvas hardcover with white title, central illustration in black and white with alpinistic scene and floral border printed in red and black. Some edge wear. Handsome cover in Near Fine condition.

An evocative portrait of the author. This fourth edition is well illustrated by three famous Austrian artists. Among the greatest alpinistic talents of his generation, Zsigmondy is still remembered today for the routes he inaugurated on the Marmolada and on the Meije in France. It was on the Meije that he perished during a climb at only 24 years of age in August of 1885. He was a physician and mountaineer - graduating as a doctor in medicine in 1884, less than a year before his death.
