Detailed Product Description
London, Spottiswoode, 1926. 13 pp, b/w illustrations. Thread sewn softcover with card covers. Near Fine to Fine.

Well illustrated study of the Grand Mulets in Alpine illustration.

"It has been an enjoyable pastime with me to attempt the classification of the illustrations in my own mountaineering library, in which there are at present about four hundred
volumes. Of these, some thirty volumes were published in the Eighteenth century, including books by Scheuchzer, Ruchat, Stanyan, Burnet, Windham and Martel, Gruner, Wyttenbach, Bourrit, and others. Out of the entire collection, I find that approximately one hundred and thirty items may be grouped as a bibliography of Mont Blanc (that is, their titles occur either in the bibliography of C. E. Mathews 6 or of H. F. Montagnier), a fact not so strange when one considers the overwhelming preponderance of early narratives dealing with ascents of Mont Blanc.

In classifying the illustrations I have made my task easier by 
consulting only volumes in my own collection and by omitting books illustrated by modern photographic methods-roughly after 1870." -from the booklet
