Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
London and New York, Harper Brothers, October 1899, Volume XCIX, No DXCIII. The entire Harper's Magazine issue is present, and like National Geographic they numbered their pages from issue to issue, so this is pages 656 to 818, or 162 pages. However, there are a whopping 116 pages of advertisements, clustered half in front, half in back, also like National Geographic. They also have many ads for schools as NG used to have, plus books from themselves and other publishers, steamships, and patent medicines. 



Conway's article on climbing Illimani is the opening article, and is 16 pages, with 13 illustrations, at least 4 of those are photographs. The others are lithographs and are excellent. There is also an excellent map.  

If you are a collector of books on the Andes, this is a must have.  For everybody else, it is worth having for the 116 pages of ads!
