Detailed Product Description
Reprint from the Zeitschrift Fur Gletscherkunde, May 1909, with some additions. 27 pp, plus 20 additional pages of excellent full page photos with tissue guards. Small grey Softcover. Fine condition.

INSCRIBED on the cover by W.H. Workman to Henry S. Hall Jr. as shown.

This is a much enlarged and expanded version of Workman's smaller and much more common Penitentes In Himalaya from 1908. It is the first in-depth discussion of Nieves Penitentes in the Himalaya, or more properly the Karakoram or Indian Himalaya. Up until then they were most prominently seen in the Andes and on Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as the Alps.
