Detailed Product Description
New York, 1923, 1st edition. 270 pp, ills, 9 maps. Freshfield's memoirs of lesser climbs in the Bernina & Maritime Alps, Corsica, Greece, Algeria, Japan and even a visit to the Ruwenzori. This copy appears to be darkened, so spine and cover titles are hard to read. Many pages are unopened, not yet slit. This book has never been read!  Inside is very clean, no flaws, Fine.

Douglas William Freshfield (1845-1934), English explorer and mountaineer, the only son of Henry R. Freshfield. His mother Jane, aka Mrs. Henry, also wrote a book on her climbs, A Summer Tour in the Grisons... in 1861.

Douglas Freshfield was a prominent member of the Royal Geographical Society. He was a pioneer climber in the Caucasus, the Himalayas, and the mountainous regions of many other countries.

In 1899 he visited India, Burma, and Ceylon, accomplishing his second greatest journey of exploration by the first circuit of Kangchenjunga. He was accompanied by Professor Garwood, who produced a map which was considered the best for the whole district. His last great journey was made at sixty years of age.

Returning from the meeting of the British Association in South Africa in 1905 when he made an attempt on Ruwenzori, then still known as the mysterious Mountains of the Moon. Mr. Freshfield edited the Alpine Journal and wrote The Exploration of the Caucasus, Round Kangchenjunga, Italian Alps, a biography of H. B. de Saussure, and Below the Snow Line.
