Untrodden Peaks and Unfrequented Valleys, A Midsummer Ramble in the Dolomites [With Ephemera Laid In]

London: George Routledge and Sons, 1890.

Hardcover. Very Good. Second edition. xxiv, 389 pp, with folding map, 9 plates, and many engravings in the text, in original pictorial cloth binding. Light scattered foxing, rubbing to extremities, bookplate (Elizabeth Dowse Davis) on front pastedown. Laid in is a scarce 4-page promotional circular for Edwards, with her portrait and facsimile signature on the front, a two-page biography of her excerpted from a November, 1889, issue of "The Book Buyer" inside, and a small illustration from Untrodden Peaks on the back. The Dolomites were little frequented when Edwards wrote this book, and though she modestly called her journey a "ramble," there were few roads (or tourists) in the area, and it was something of an adventure-one that gave birth to her life-long love for exploring and writing about lesser known reaches of the world.
