About this Item: Ulrico Hoepli (Tipografia Umberto Allegretti), Milano, 1908. In-8° (250x180mm), pp. XI, 358, (1), legatura editoriale in tutta tela blu. 168 fotoincisioni b.n. n.t. All'antiporta, tavola applicata su cartoncino riproducente il Tramonto sul Lago Vittoria di A. Fitzgerald. 24 tavv. f.t. in eliotipia in b.n., 5 grandi vedute panoramiche f.t. più volte ripiegate in eliotipia in b.n. e 7 carte (due in un'unica tavola) f.t. ripiegate di profili altimetrici, topografici, schemi geologici, carte itinerarie, etc. L'intero materiale iconografico si basa su fotografie o disegni di Vittorio Sella, membro della spedizione. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione, non comune, di questo celebre resoconto dal magnifico apparato iconografico. Benché l'opera rechi in testa il nome del Principe Luigi Amedeo di Savoia Duca degli Abruzzi, essa è stesa da Filippo De Filippi e consiste nella relazione della spedizione del Duca in Africa Tropicale fra l'aprile e il settembre del1906, con la prima ascensione del Ruwenzori e di altre cime della regione. Tutta quanta la catena, dalla quale si aveva sicura nozione da meno di vent'anni, fu completamente esplorata. Questo è giustificato dal perfetto spirito organizzativo del Comandante della Spedizione (Giotto Dainelli). Le appendici concernono i Monti della Luna tolomeiani e la catena del Ruwenzori e svariate osservazioni astronomiche, geologiche, geodetiche, meteorologiche, altimetriche, magnetiche, coordinate dall'Istituto Idrografico della Regia Marina di Genova. An account of the expedition of H. R. H. Prince Luigi Amadeo of Savoy, Duke of the Abruzzi. Classic reference work on this tropical range; the expedition succeeded in climbing all the principal peaks (Neate, F27). Nello stesso anno l'opera fu tradotta in inglese e pubblicata a Londra e New York e l'anno successivo apparve anche in francese a Parigi. Il De Filippi (Milano, 1814-Hong Kong, 1867) fu naturalista, allievo dello Zendrini a Pavia, professore di zoologia a Torino e, nella stessa città, direttore del Museo Zoologico (di cui arricchì straordinariamente le collezioni), nonché membro dell'Accademia delle Scienze. Senatore dal 1865, morì a bordo della corvetta Magenta in prossimità di Hong Kong. Perret, 1656: Ce bel ouvrage, signé du Duc des Abruzzes, a été écrit par le Dr. Filippo de Filippi. Peu courant et recherché. A.C.L., p. 195. Neate, cit. B.N. C.A.I. Angelini, 970. S.A.C., p. 560. Italiano. Seller Inventory # 6193

About this Item: Archibald Constable and Co. Ltd., London, 1908. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. With a preface by HRH The Duke of the Abruzzi. Red brick cloth covered boards gilt titling to front board and to spine (a little rubbed and slightly faded). Some marks/spots but sound. Front endpaper inscription clipped. The translation from the Italian has been made by Caroline de Filippi, nee Fitzgerald. The illustrations are from photographs taken by Vittorio Sella, member of the expedition. Full colour frontispiece from the painting by A Fitzgerald (tissue guard). 408 pp, hinges just starting. 24 photogravures and 5 folding panoramas by Vittorio Sella, numerous black & white illustrations from photographs, including 12 full-page, 2 folding diagrams, 5 including 3 coloured (folding). This is a very scarce work of Africana. The mountain range of Ruwenzori is believed to be the mythical mountains of the Moon referred to by Ptolemy. Located in central Africa, these snowy mountains drain into the lakes that feed the Nile making them the true source of the great river. Perpetually shrouded in mists, Stanley and other explorers thought upon first sight of the mountains that they were simply a trick of the eye. Many explorers had tried to ascend these peaks but had never succeeded. The Duke's expedition was the first to truly explore and document the range after nearly half a century of speculation, setting in place the final piece of the Nile puzzle. This successful expedition climbed all the major mountain peaks. A REMARKABLE NARRATIVE. Seller Inventory # 002784
