Detailed Product Description

London, Adam and Charles Black, 1904, 1st edition. 294 pp, 70 color plates by A.D. McCormick with captioned tissue protectors, TEG. Handsome pictorial blue cloth hardcover. Book has edgewear and cracked internal hinges. Very Good.

Sir Martin Conway, who combines an almost unrivaled mountaineering record with the gift of acute observation and a pure and delicate style, has written a book that explores what mountains mean to those who love them. For the lay reader there is ample entertainment in the many admirable descriptive passages, illustrated, as they are, by Mr. McCormick's pictures. The coloring of the Alps, both in the low levels and in the great snowfields, is often exquisitely simple.


The Chapter headings are:

  • The Treasures of the Snow
  • How to See Mountains
  • How Mountains Are Made
  • All Sorts and Conditions of Alps
  • The Moods of the Mountains
  • Mountains All the Year Round
  • Types of Alpine Peaks
  • Passes
  • Glaciers
  • Alpine Pastures
  • The Human Interest
  • Volcanoes
