About this Item: Webb & Bower 1986 (1st UK), 1986. First Edition. A new illustrated edition with photgraphs by John Cleare. The most famous of all mountaineering books. Whymper was a young wood engraver who became obsessed with the first ascent of the Matterhorn. The price he had to pay for achieving this was the loss of his companions in the most celebrated mountain disaster of all time. His one other great expedition was in 1880 to the Andes of Ecuador. Although his writings and lecturing brought him success, his life may be said to have been ruined by the tragedy which followed his moment of triumph].

About this Item: John Murray, London, 1871. First edition of the author's classic work on mountaineering, the first to help promote the very notion that peaks are meant to be climbed. Octavo, original cloth, 23 plates and numerous illustrations after drawings by Whymper; 5 folding maps. Inscribed by the author to the geologist and Alpinist Thomas Bonney , "from his obedient servant--the Author." Also tipped in is a cordial 2 1/2-page letter signed from Whymper dated London, 15 June 1871, presenting this copy to Bonney, with additional comments on geological topics and book reviewing ("If I am asked to suggest reviewers, could you spare time to cut up 'Scrambles'?"). Published in 1871, Scrambles Amongst the Alps is Whymper's own story of his nine years spent climbing in the Alps. One of the first books devoted to the sheer thrill of mountaineering, it is a breathtaking account of the triumph of man over mountain "the mountain which first dominated then destroyed him. His book Scrambles is the most famous mountaineering book in the world" (Neate). Seller Inventory # 25092
