Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Language: eng 236 pages. Seller Inventory # 100152084300

Book Description Hardpress Publishing, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy. Seller Inventory # APC9781290159593

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from The Story of Alpine Climbing Alpine climbing is distinctly a modern enter prise. As a sport it is usually dated from the ascent of the Wetterhorn by Mr Justice Wills, then Mr Alfred Wills of the junior bar, in 1854 and the English Alpine Club - which was the first of all the Alpine Clubs - was not formed until three years later. Explorers and men of science, however, had had adventures on the mountains before the sportsmen repaired to them for athletic exercise, so that the threads of the story of the pastime have to be picked up from somewhat further back.
