Dealer Notes
Moore (1841-1887) made extensive Alpine tours in the years 1860-81, including this one with Whymper and Horace Walker in 1864. Part of the book describes Moore’s ascent of Mont Blanc. His account was described by the Editor of the Alpine Journal at the time of Moore's death as "one of the most vivid and fascinating books of Alpine travel which have ever been written". The scarcity of the book, even by the end of the nineteenth century, prompted A. B. W. Kennedy of the Alpine Club to publish a new edition in 1902. An important and rare book.
