The Object of the jou Excerpt from The Alps From End to End: With 52 Full-Paged Illustrations Previously mountaineering was one Of the best forms of training for a traveller, and indeed supplied, for busy persons whose annual holiday must be Short, experi ence Of all the Charms, excitements, and delights which reward the explorer Of distant and unknown regions Of the earth. The Object of the journey now to be described was to discover whether the time had not come when a return might be made to the habits Of Alpine pioneers.
Of course the mystery is gone from the Alps, how completely none but climbers know. Almost every mountain and point of View of even third-rate importance has been ascended, most by many routes.
Almost every gap between two peaks has been traversed as a pass. The publications of some dozen mountaineer ing societies have recorded these countless expeditions in rows Of volumes Of appalling length. Of late years vigorous attempts have been made to co-ordinate this mass Of material in the form Of Climbers' Guides, dealing with particular districts, wherein every peak and pass is dealt with in strict geographical succession and every different route and all the variations Of each route are set forth, with references to the volumes in which they have been described at length by their discoverers.

The Alps from End to End by William Martin Conway
Popular Features. New Releases. Categories: Historical Geography Guidebooks Expeditions. Description During a life of many and varied interests, the art historian and mountaineer William Martin Conway served as a professor of art at Liverpool and Cambridge, a member of parliament, director-general of the Imperial War Museum, and president of the Alpine Club. He climbed extensively in Europe and the Himalayas, mapped part of the Karakoram range for which he was knighted , and named several mountains.
In he walked the length of the Alps accompanied by two Gurkha soldiers. The celebrated expedition took the party sixty-five days to complete. Conway and his companions climbed twenty-one peaks, including Mont Blanc, the Jungfrau and Grossglockner, and traversed thirty-nine mountain passes. Published a year later, this is the illustrated second edition of Conway's popular personal account of the expedition, in which he documents the party's progress on a daily basis.
