Detailed Product Description
Published by the Government Printing Office, Washington, 1919, 1st edition: Department of the Interior, National Park Service. 106 pages, illustrated with 23 plates of b&w photographs. Lacks both maps.  Softcover, cover edges have been taped with electrical tape. Possibly removable with solvent. 

This 1919 first edition is quite rare. We have had the 1921 edition many times, but this is the only 1919 edition we have had in 40 years. 

This is the first mountaineering guide book to the mountain peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park that are over 11,000 feet. The book includes suggestions for climbing, camping equipment, clothing, food, accommodations and day trips as well as descriptions of trees, mountain birds, and information on weather and climatology.

From the Introduction: 'The immediate purpose of this book is to familiarize the visitor with the Rocky Mountain National Park. But the arbitrary boundaries of the park will no more confine the activities of the ardent climber than they define the natural area of the region'; goes to say that it also includes the outlying areas of Arapaho Pass, some miles of the Medicine Bow or Never Summer Range west of the Colorado River.

Contents include: Index of peaks, The park, National forests, One-day trips, The passes, Camping outfit, Camping facilities, Health and hygiene, Weather and climatology, Evergreens of northern Colorado, Six characteristic mountain birds, Key to Colorado chipmunks, squirrels and gophers, The peaks and how to reach them, Longs Peak (various routes), Mount Meeker, Peaks of the Mummy Range, Other peaks of the Continental Divide, Peaks accessible from Wild Basin, Peaks accessible from Middle St. Vrain Creek, Peaks accessible from Ward, from north Boulder Creek, from the West Slope, Grand Lake, Monarch Lake, Circuit Trips, and General Data, Bibliography, Hotels, more.

The map is of Rocky Mountain National Park; the photos show Longs Peak, Chasm Lake, Longs Peak Trail, Odessa Lake, Loch Vale, Hallett Glacier, Flattop Mountain, Lakes of the Wild Basin, South Arapaho Peak, Mount Richthofen, Mount Baker, Grand Lake, and more. Road and Trail Guide Map in the rear pocket. Paperback. Near Fine.
