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.
