An important book on pre-19th Century mountaineering , mostly in the Alps but a few chapters on the Pyrenees. Brown morocco spine and corners, quite plain in decoration. I estimate that the binding was done between 1950 and 1980 based on style. Raised bands, top edge gilt, Slight edgewear. Marbled endpapers. Pages xiv, 338. Very clean and tight inside. There is a little wrinkling on some of the slick paper plates. I guess the book might have had some dampness at some point, but not now. Neale G 67. Quite a scarce volume, only one other on the internet in the U.S. at this writing
