Detailed Product Description
GLACIERS OF THE ALPS: BEING A NARRATIVE OF EXCURSIONS AND ASCENTS, AN ACCOUNT OF THE ORIGIN AND PHENOMENA OF GLACIERS, AND AN EXPOSITION OF THE PHYSICAL PRINCIPLES TO WHICH THEY ARE RELATED.

London, 1860, 1st UK edition. 444 pp, frontispiece illustration, 61 figures and illustrations, appendix, index, 32 pp publisher's adverts. Tyndall was a well-regarded scientist and climber whose best 1st ascent was the Weisshorn, and who competed with Whymper for the Matterhorn.  This is a classic scientific treatise continuing the work of Agassiz and Forbes and dedicated to Faraday, a close friend and colleague at the Royal Institution. In 1860 Tyndall made an early assault on the Matterhorn which, together with two subsequent expeditions to Switzerland, formed the basis for this book and for the author's enthusiasm for mountaineering. [Neate T75.] Original burgundy cloth hardcover with gold lettering and pressed decoration on cover, faded and edgeworn spine, no foxing on interior pages, Good.
