First edition. A copy with fine provenance, coming from the library of famed climber Eric Roberts. With twenty-five illustrations from photographs by Margaret E. Broadbent on captioned glossy plates and with a map of Italy's Alpine valleys as the front endpapers. 8vo, original blue cloth lettered on the upper cover in blind and on the spine in gilt. xii, 244, 8 pp. A very good copy indeed, a little of the spotting associated with paper of the era and some general mellowing from time but still a handsome, solid and well preserved copy, the gilt is bright and the cloth in good order.
