This is the first printing of the first UK edition of THE ASCENT OF MOUNT ST. ELIAS (ALASKA) BY H.R.H. PRINCE LUIGI AMADEO DI SAVOIA, DUKE OF THE ABRUZZI by Filippo de Filippi. This book was published in Westminster [London] by Archibald Constable and Co in 1900. The book measures 277mm tall x 185mm, and has 241 pages, 34 b/w plates, 2 folding color maps, 4 folding half-tone panoramas, 117 halftone text ills, 6 appendices, bibliography. This is the classic account of the first ascent of Mt. St. Elias in Alaska.

CONDITION: Attractively rebound in green cloth with gilt lettering spine and original cover title patch relaid, TEG. Looks very similar to original binding. Fine condition. Complete with all plates, panoramas, maps. No foxing, tight binding, no owner marks, no writing, and no dampstaining on any pages. NOT ex-library. Rebinds of this book are more common than not because copies did not wear well and all original bindings of it fall apart since they were never sewn but glued. Even if you found a completely unused and unopened copy that had been stored in a box, the binding would fall apart if you tried to open the pages and read the book because the glue fails over time. Price: SOLD.

NOTE: See the listing of the other copy of this title on this website for examples of the the panoramas.
