Detailed Product Description
London, 1899, new edition. 164 pages, advertisements. Original hardcover, cover and spine have edge wear. Previous owner's name on top of cover and top of title page, no other marks . Very Good condition overall.

This edition has contributions from geology of the Alps by T.G. Bonney, climate and vegetation by Percy Groom, photography by Sydney Spencer, John Ball. Includes methods of travel from England to Alps, life in an Alpine valley by W.A.B. Coolidge, and a chapter on mountaineering. A bibliography that would put the A.C. library to shame, it would cost half a million dollars to gather those books today. And it couldn't be done. 

Originally published in 1863, this book serves as a general guide to climbers and other travelers in the Alps - where to stay, how to travel, hiring guides and porters, huts, geology, animals, climate and weather, snow and glaciers, photography, etc.
