Detailed Product Description

THE ALPINE JOURNAL: A record of mountain adventure and scientific observation. By members of the Alpine Club. Vol. 1 (1863) - No 366 (2018) 

A COMPLETE SET 1863-2018, 150+ VOLUMES, and INDEXES. 20,000+ pages, hundreds of illustrations and maps, some fold-out. Many of the 19th century prints and maps are hand colored.

This is a complete run of the oldest continually published periodical in mountaineering, with articles by all the great names in climbing history, and records of ascents published either nowhere else, or earlier than anywhere else. 

The entire set takes up over five 3 foot shelves, and the volumes are in Very Good to Fine condition. The exterior appearance is VG-Fine. As this set weighs several hundred pounds, there will be extra postage for USA or International orders.
