ADAMS, ANSEL / BROWER, DAVID /CHILD, GREG / KALLMES, PAUL / WATSON, WENDY M.
"Summit: Vitorio Sella, mountaineer and photographer the years 1879-1909
Aperture Foundations, New York, 1999, 1st edition. Black cloth boards, silver lettering to spine under dustwrapper illustrated with photographs of icy mountains. 12.25ins x 11ins, pictorial endpapers, 144pp including two double page fold-outs. The essays are accompanied by a large number of superb period photographs. ""Weighed down by heavy, nineteenth century camera equipment, Vittorio Sella climbed some of the world's most mysterious, perilous peaks and photographed them, many for the first time. His strikingly elegant photographs, which in Ansel Adam's words, ""revealed the mountains in all their sheer majesty"", established groundbreaking scientific and documentary information as well. Through Sella's images, we witness the grandeur of the Alps, the Caucasus, the Saint Elias Range in Alaska, the Ruwenzori in Africa, and the Himalayas. Sella's portfolio of K2 in the Western Himalayas is the definitive photographic study of this mountain, considered to be the world's most difficult and dangerous to climb. His dazzling photographic documentation of these mountains had no predecessors and has few, if any, successors."" VG / VG.
