Detailed Product Description
London, 1890, 1st edition. 251 pp, 10 b/w illustrations, foldout map. Red cloth hardcover. Spine is faded and book has light edge wear. Overall Near Fine - a very nice copy.

A Selkirks classic; includes numerous first ascents. The Rev. Green was an Irish civil servant who made the first ascent of Mount Bonney in the Selkirks in 1888. The Selkirk mountains extend from British Columbia as far south as eastern Washington. 

Green was a member of the English Alpine Club and became a mountain climber well-known especially in Canada and New Zealand. He was one of the earliest serious climbers in New Zealand and Canada. In 1882, he attempted with two Swiss guides a first ascent of Mount Cook in New Zealand, but the party was forced back by bad weather before reaching the top. 

At a dinner in their honour he proposed the "founding of a New Zealand Alpine Club", which eventually occurred in 1891. In the late 1880s Green did survey work in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, including the first ascent of Mount Bonney in 1888. Mount Green in Glacier National Park of the Selkirk Mountains is named in his honor.
