1 Fitzgerald, E. A. Climbs in the New Zealand Alps: Being an Account of Travel and Discovery
London T. Fisher Unwin 1896 Second Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Rebacked with most of the original cloth spine laid down (the original spine cloth has a couple of 1" by 3/8" chips and moderate loss along the joints). 1/2" loss of cloth along edges of corners of boards. Moderate foxing to the frontispiece and title page. Minor foxing elsewhere. Owner's signatures on front endpaper. Narrow split along gutter between half-title page and frontispiece. The large folding map is in poor condition, separated into two pieces along one of the folds, and with additional large tears along some other folds. ; Second edition, August 1896 (the first edition was in June 1896). xvi, 363, [1] pages + frontispiece + plates + very large colour folding map in pocket at rear. Red cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine and publisher's emblem in black in corner of front board. Page dimensions: 240 x 172mm. Fitzgerald was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. The first chapter includes some pages and an illustration of the author's time in Ceylon en route to New Zealand. "That the settled and fertile colony of New Zealand should have still afforded virgin peaks to scale, that new passes were yet to be discovered and new valleys to be traversed - this may indeed surprise those of my readers who have no especial knowledge of the conditions and features of the Southern Island. How many of us have ever realised the existence of that vast range of Alps, of those glaciers surpassing the greatest in Switzerland, of those noble peaks whose crags re-echo to the thunder of almost perpetual avalanches?" - from the Preface. ; 8vo
