1 Spectorsky, A. C. (Edited by) The Book of the Mountains : Being a Collection of Writings About the Mountains in All Their Aspects; with 64 Pages of Illustrations in Halftone and Gravure, and Many Line Drawings
New York Appleton-Century-Crofts 1955 First Edition, First Printing Cloth 
(1955). Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full pictorial cloth. Quarto. Yellow topstain and brown endpapers. [x] + 492pps., with numerous photos and drawings. There is very mild rubbing to the tips and spine-ends, otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. The text is immaculate; no previous ownership markings. The original acetate sleeve has a 1" chip at the bottom of the rear panel and a small closed tear at the head of the spine. A very nice copy, beautifully illustrated and with contributions from numerous sources and authors. A companion volume to 'The Book of the Sea.' ".'The Book of the Mountains' carries us all over the earth, through the Himalayan ranges, and mountains of wild Wales; across the Andes, and the Pyrenees; to the High Sierras, the glaciers of the Alps, to reveal the mountain world. The lure of great heights; the peaceful solitude and majesty of towering ranges; the blinding fury of mountain storms -- all are reflected in these selections which have been culled from the earliest written records down to the present." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
