Detailed Product Description

New York, 1906, 2nd edition. Revised and enlarged edition of Wilcox's Camping in the Canadian Rockies (1896). 309 pp, TEG, many photos and ills. Lacks three maps. 

This copy has been bound in 3/4 leather, with bright spine lettering in gold, and gold outlining on the leather corners. The front and rear covers are mostly leather, but about half the boards are covered with a beautiful marbled paper. The marbling  is also used on the endpapers. The leather was of a type that has not stood up well to the last 110 years of world-wide mayhem. The edges are worn and the hinges have been repaired. Overall Very Good, perhaps Near Fine as internally the book is like New! 

Advice from our personal shopper: Do not let the missing maps deter you. The handsome leather binding is the reason to buy this volume. It is decoration, pure shameless decoration. Most collectors of books on Canadian Mountaineering eventually have several copies of this work. It is not rare. 

Wilcox was one of the early explorers of the Canadian Rockies in the 1890's and an original Canadian Alpine Club member. The author, America mountaineer and original A. A. C. member, explored the Canadian Rockies in the 1890s to the north of Kicking Horse Pass and south to Mt. Assiniboine. He made more than 20 first ascents of in the Canadian Rockies.

This nicely illustrated work was first published as Camping in the Canadian Rockies in 1896 and is here expanded. Whale 1694. Lowther 1250: 'An account of camp life in the wilder parts of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, together with a description of the region around Banff, Lake Louise and Glacier, and a sketch of early explorations. One of the best early sources of information on the Alberta-British Columbia border region.'
