Edward Whymper è stato un alpinista, incisore e disegnatore. E' noto per avere scalato per primo la vetta del Cervino, ma la conquista fu funestata dalla morte di quattro compagni di cordata. Nel libro viene descritta l'ascesa e la tragedia causata probabilmente da una corda difettosa. Bookseller Inventory # ZVWH49043
