Dealer Notes
Neate C156; Perret 1173. An evocative record of the silver age of Alpinism. The list of entries - Melchior Anderegg, Christian Almer, François Devouassoud, Jean-Antoine Carrel, Emile Rey, and others - is a roll call of the most important Alpine guides of the later nineteenth century. Superb portrait photogravures accompany each biography in this nicely produced volume. A second edition, in slightly smaller format, was published the following year.
