Detailed Product Description
Minnesota, University of Minnesota Press, 1931, 1st edition. 81 pp, 7 b/w photos, map. Small hardcover with a tipped on photo on the cover. There is no wear or fading anywhere. Very Fine condition. The book was partially unopened when we recived it. We slit some pages, some may still be unslit.  Use a sharp knife blade, knives are easier to control than razor blades. 

This book is inscribed by a Sierra Club activist and trip leader named Holway Jones to William Colby, who was also a Sierra Club trip leader and activist, and who had been a SC member since 1898. Therefore we can assume that this was William Colby's copy.

This book is the biography of Edward Holway who with Howard Palmer made many first ascents in the Selkirks and other Canadian ranges. 

Holway was a Minneapolis banker and botanist, who also was an accomplished mountaineer.
This is a climbing biography of Holway who spent 16 seasons climbing in the Canadian Rockies and Interior Ranges, making many first ascents. He wrote 7 articles for the Canadian Alpine Journal about his climbs from 1909 to 1918.

Howard Palmer joined Holway on several of the climbs. Holway made the first ascents of Mt. Edith Cavell, Longstaff, Cyprian Peak, Augustine, Topham, Citadel, Austerity, Sir Sandford, Adamant, and several other peaks. He was the first person to explore the Cariboo Mountains.
