Detailed Product Description
New York, Rand McNally, 1965, 1st edition. 232 pp, 69 b/w photos. Blue hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket and book are both Fine.

Toward the end of the eighteenth century, long before the appearance of mountaineering as a sport, men had reached its summit and had written of their experiences. This book, concerning the world-famous mountain located in eastern France, contains a brilliant body of prose and verse that has been written from the late 18th to the present.
 
An illustrated anthology from the early days of the mountain's exploration, with articles by Whymper, Mallory, GW Young, Armand Chalet, Gervasutti, Rebuffat, Magnone, Mark Twain, Terray, Bouritt, as well as writers such as Rousseau, Disraeli, De Saussure, Dickens, Victor Hugo and many others. Collection of writings which approach Mont Blanc, taking in the mountain in its setting, the approaches, the weather, the climb & the summit. Many extracts are included from all manner of writers and travelers.
