Descripción

Text/Bright, clean, As New. Yellow linen boards/fine. DJ/None. PO name to fEP. Maps to endpapers. Story of the Mount of the Holy Cross, the northernmost fourteen thousand foot mountain in the Sawatch Range, part of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the northeast face of which bears a distinct cross-shaped snowfield. The first recorded ascent was in 1873 led by Ferdinand Vandiveer Hayden, to whom this volume is dedicated; the expedition included photographer William H. Jackson who also kept a diart of the climb. The powerfully symbolic mount is vividly immortalized in Jackson's wet plate photographs, artist Thomas Moran's painting, and Longfellow's poem "The Snowy Cross". Co-author Clarence S. Jackson is the son of photographer Jackson; a composite photographic rendition of his father's original work is included in the book's illustrations. N° de ref. de la librería 010018
