Detailed Product Description
Full title: A Climb in Monviso: Letter of Quintino Sella to B. Gastaldi, Secretary of the School for Engineers

Italy, Libreria Alpina G. Degli Espositi, 1971 reprint (1863). 63 pp. In Italian. Small paperback. Fine.

"Dearest friend, We succeeded; and a group of Italians has finally climbed the Monviso! I was for a few moments in doubt if I should write to you. It is a real cruelty to come to you, to whom duty kept chained under this scorching heat in the midst of dry and annoying papers like the dust that infests the streets, and to speak to you of the incomparable satisfactions we enjoyed at the foot of the snows, in the midst of the unattainable sublimity of alpine horrors. But I would not like you to blame me for speechless, and here is a brief mention of our trip." - Excerpted from the original translation 

Quintino Sella was an Italian politician, economist and mountaineer.
