Dealer Notes
Freshfield was an early visitor to the Caucasus, and made his first attempt on Elbrus in 1868, visiting the region again several times. In the present volumes he brought together much information on the area. The photographs, which include the well-known dramatic picture of Ushba, the “Matterhorn of the Caucasus”, were by the mountain photographer, Vittorio Sella.
