Detailed Product Description
New York, 1880, 1st edition. 171 pp, many illustrations. The gold and green embossed cover and spine designs make this one of the most attractive books we have seen. Beautiful pictorial cover and charming illustrations. Former owner's neat inscription on the front board. Fine condition.

Mostly travel and descriptive, but also includes an ascent in the Dolomites.

George Edwin Waring, Jr. (1833-1893) was a prominent American sanitary engineer and agriculturalist. He was the agricultural and drainage engineer of New York's Central Park, a colonel in the Union cavalry during the Civil War, manager of the Ogden Farm, a cattle breeder who was the first to bring Jersey stock to the U.S., and the designer of the Memphis sewer system, a landmark achievement in American urban improvement. He was also the author of a number of books, including this account of travel in the Austrian Alps. While there are occasional comments on agriculture and irrigation, the work is not of a professional nature, but the observations of an educated observer who was enamored with mountain life, including the people, the small towns and villages, and the natural landscape.
