Detailed Product Description
London, 1939, 3rd edition. 246 + 278 pp, 5 maps, 18 illustrations. Two volumes. Tan cloth hardcovers with green lettering and small illustration on the front covers. Both volumes are Fine inside and exterior. 

Moore was one of the most active climbers of the ''Golden Age.'' The two-volumes set is an account of Moore's 1864, 1865 and 1872 Alpine seasons with Edward Whymper and Horace Walker. It is delightful in its personal reports of the climbs made that year, including Mont Blanc. The first edition is one of the scarcest and most desirable of all books from this period. [Neate M137.]

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Moore made a first ascent during his first visit to the Alps in 1862 and immediately became a central figure in the golden age of alpinism. Moore's first ascents include:

23 July 1862: Fiescherhorn (Bernese Alps) with H. B. George and the guides Christian Almer and Ulrich Kaufmann
25 June 1864: Barre des crins (Dauphin Alps) with Edward Whymper and Horace Walker, and the guides Michel Croz, Christian Almer the elder, and Christian Almer the younger.
28 June 1865: Piz Roseg (Bernina Alps) with Horace Walker and the guide Jakob Anderegg
6 July 1865: Ober Gabelhorn (Pennine Alps) with Horace Walker and Jakob Anderegg
9 July 1865: Pigne d'Arolla (Pennine Alps) with Horace Walker and Jakob Anderegg
15 July 1865: Brenva Spur on Mont Blanc with George Spencer Mathews, Frank Walker and Horace Walker, and the guides Jakob Anderegg and Melchior Anderegg. This last route, the Brenva Spur, was the first to be climbed on the remote southern side of Mont Blanc and exceeded in difficulty anything that had thus far been attempted onthe mountain. Moore's description of the Brenva ascent is, according to Claire Engel, ''amongst the finest Alpine tales in existence.''

Moore went to the Caucasus with Douglas Freshfield and Charles Comyns Tucker in 1868, making the first ascent by a non-native of Mount Elbrus (the lower of the two summits), the highest mountain in the Caucasus, and the first ascent of Kazbek with the same party.
