Scrap, wood engraving with letterpress, sheet 165 x 125mm (6½ x 5"). Trimmed.
Fragment of a lecture programme, illustrated with a plan of the route of an expedition through the Alps to the summit of Mont Blanc, with an 18-point key below, height graduations and a list of comparative heights of other European mountains. It is a fascinating glimpse of a extensive lecture-cum-entertainment about a mountaineering expedition, which according to the verso featured dramatic accounts of various stages of the ascent, songs, and the viewing of a painting of 'Chamouni During the Inundation'.
