Detailed Product Description
FULL TITLE:
*LE GRAND ALPI NELLA CARTOGRAFIA DEI SECOLI PASSATI 1482-1865. Con gli itinerari dei valichi tra la Val d'Aosta, la Savoia e il Vallese e considerazioni sulla zona del Gran Paradiso.
[THE MAPS OF THE GREAT ALPS OVER PAST CENTURIES 1482-1865: with the Routes of Passes between the Aosta Valley, Savoy and the Valais, and Some Considerations on the Gran Paradiso Area]

Italy, Oriuli & Verlucca, 1974, 1st edition. 471 pp, hundreds of maps reproduced, many in color, many large format. In English, Italian and French. Large format hardcover with pictorial cover, No DJ was issued. Book is utterly Fine. The collection in which we bought this book may have been the original owner,  as I know he was collecting books in the 1970s, and traveled in Europe.

The book shows and described how the Alps appeared in maps through the several centuries that it took to explore. It weaves in the stories of the major climbs, especially of Mont Blanc.

As this book is large and heavy we will request extra postage for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail.  The book size is 12'' x 8 1/2'' x 2'' thick. It will fit in a USPS Priority Flat Rate Medium Size box, so it would cost $25 by Priority Mail and about $90 for International Mail.
