Elle est illustrée d'une vignette de titre coloriée, de onze planches hors texte lithographiées par Hullmandel d'après les dessins de l'auteur et coloriées à la main et d'un fac-similé hors texte. Somptueusement illustré, en coloris d'époque, ce chef-d'oeuvre est d'une rareté légendaire. Charles Fellows était un jeune archéologue anglais de 28 ans, lorsqu'il effectua, en compagnie de son compatriote Benjamin Hawes, la 18e ascension du Mont-Blanc en 1827 et la première empruntant le passage du 'Corridor', dont ce livre est le récit. Très rare et magnifique ouvrage, très recherché. Sans doute la plus estimée des relations des premières ascensions du Mont-Blanc. (Perret). Des bibliothèques de Captain Helot John Eliot et Marcus de Lavis-Trafford, avec ex-libris. Initiales portées à l'encre ' GHM ' ou ' GHW '. Reliure robuste en chagrin noir, rousseurs légères, un peu plus marquées en début de volume. Nombreux feuillets blancs rajoutés au début de l'ouvrage. Please notify before visiting to see a book.
