Detailed Product Description
New York, Appleton, 1885 US reprint. 484 pp, 7 b/w plates. Rust cloth hardcover with black decoration and gilt titles. May have faded spine and/or former owner's name on FEP. Internally, book is fine. Near Fine condition.

Tyndall's most famous book, includes his Weisshorn ascent and attempts on the Matterhorn. Tyndall was Whymper's great rival for the first ascent of the Matterhorn, the last major peak in the Alps awaiting a first ascent in 1865, the finale of the Alpine Golden Age.
 
In this great narrative holds the true experience of a great adventure in the Alps.  The illustrations really add to the story in which includes The Lauwinen-Thor, Disaster on the Col Du Geant, The Matterhorn, The Bel Alp, The Weisshorn, Over the Moro, and among many more great topics are touched upon in this great adventure narrative. This is a mountaineering classic that should be in a complete climbing library.

The Weisshorn was first climbed in 1861 from Randa by the Irish physicist John Tyndall, accompanied by the guides J.J. Bennen and Ulrich Wenger. Nowadays, the Weisshorn Hut is used on the normal route. The Weisshorn is considered by many mountaineers to be the most beautiful mountain in the Alps and Switzerland for its pyramidal shape and pure white slopes.
