Item #75641 TRAVELS IN ALASKA. John Muir.


Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1915. First Edition. Hardcover. Muir (1838-1914) made several trips to the pristine, relatively unexplored territory of Alaska, irresistibly drawn to its awe-inspiring glaciers and its wild menagerie of bears, bald eagles, wolves, and whales. Half-poet and half-geologist, he recorded his experiences and reflections in this book, which he was in the process of completing at the time of his death. Octavo: xii, 330 p. with 12 plates. Original gray cloth binding, with a color plate inset on the front board and titles in white. Just the slightest hint of foxing; else an especially fresh and clean example. Near fine. Kimes 334. Near fine. Item #75641
