New York, Charles Scribner's, 1907, 1st US edition. 336 pp, 14 color plates, 23 pen and ink drawings and 11 photos. TEG. Royal Octavo. Very handsome Large Format Hardcover in Very Good condition. Book is not often seen with this lack of wear or hard use. Only flaws are some exterior soiling, and leather title patches are rubbed, hard to read. .

The principal work on the early history of the Matterhorn. Includes chapters on the efforts of Tyndall, Whymper and others, and concludes with Rey's own ascents by the Zmutt and Furggen ridges.
 
One of the principal books on the early history of the Matterhorn, written by wealthy Italian climber who knew and loved it well, it covers every face of the mountain, with histories and diagrams of many attempts both failed and successful. Thirty-seven illustrations almost as comprehensive as the text. Introduction by Edmondo De Amicis.
