The All England Series - Mountaineering

£18.99

Product description

Classic, late Victorian guide to the art of mountaineering, mostly of an Alpine nature. By Claude Wilson, a member of the (British) Alpine Club, and illustrated by Ellis Carr, himself a member of the same club and a distinguished climber in his own right. Used hardback in good condition. Some wear externally - bumping to corners; wear at top and tail of spine and edges of spine; bottom of front board creased. Spine darkened but inscription here still legible. Edges of text block tanned. Some light foxing internally, particularly to the paste downs and end papers. Some dark marks in the preface where there have been labels stuck in at some time (a compliments slip from the author is stuck to the top of the first page of the preface). Otherwise the book is clean internally. The binding is sound but creaky, with gutter breaks throughout.
