Detailed Product Description
New York, 1929, only edition. 22 pp. Paperbound, bound with a string. Internally the pages are fine, with no writing. The paper cover has numerous bumps, edge wear, and is Very Good. 

One of 250 copies privately printed. Alpine, Ecuador and, in 1921, Colorado climbing memoirs. Describes climbs of the Unter Gabelhorn, Matterhorn, Aiguille L'M, Petits Charmoz, Aiguille Du Moine, Longs Peak in 1923, Pichincha in Ecuador, and in 1925 the Piz Caputschin, Piz Moerteratsch, Furorcla Gluschaint, and Piz Tschierva, the last 4 in the Engadine.

The author served as the Commissioner of Water in New York City, as an immigration officer at Ellis Island during the presidencies of T.R. Roosevelt and Taft, and as an an army officer during WWI. The author wrote two previous memoirs, this is much less common, we last had a copy before we had a website, pre 2004. This book makes reference to a coming full book of memoirs, which apparently never appeared.
