Detailed Product Description
Seattle, Shorey Book Store, 1967, "first edition of facsimile reprint Ltd to 100 copies June 1967". 25 pp, b/w illustration on title page. Staple bound softcover with pictorial cover. Very good.

"The view I hold firmly, and which I wish to place before you today, is that this popular belief that the love of mountains is a taste, or, as some would say, a mania, of advanced civilization, is erroneous. On the contrary, I allege it to be a healthy, primitive and almost universal human instinct. I think I can indicate how and why the opposite belief has been fostered by eminent writers. 

They have taken too narrow a time limit for their investigation. They have compared the nineteenth century not with the preceding ages, but with the eighteenth. They have also taken too narrow a space limit. They have hardly cast their eyes beyond western Europe."
