Item ID 30683
Stuttgart and Leipzig, Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1905. 4to (29.2 x 21.0 cm). xi, 258 pp.; 35 plates of which 14 are nicely tinted photographic plates after water-colours, mounted on black paper, all by Edoardo Rubino and 11 photographs (most by Vittorio Sella and a few by G. Rey) and ten photographic plates from drawings also by Edoardo Rubino. Furthermore there are 13 images of drawings in the text also by Edoardo Rubino [complete]. Original cloth with bevelled edges, gilt mounted title piece on front board and gilt-lettered spine label. Mottled olive endpapers. Top edge gilt. Absolutely complete and very good copy of the classic in alpine literature. The title page mentions that there are 37 drawings and 11 photographs: this is correct, but it is a matter of how you count. We have counted everything, including a full-page image as "a plate" and the drawings in the text separately. In any case, our copy is in near mint condition and complete. Absolutely complete and very good copy of the classic in alpine literature
