The Jungfrau at 4,158 meters (13,642 ft) is one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps between the northern canton of Bern and the southern canton of Valais. Together with the Eiger and Monch, the Jungfrau forms a massive wall of mountains overlooking the Bernese Oberland and the Swiss Plateau and is one of the most distinctive sights of the Swiss Alps.

The Monch at 4,110 metres (13,480 ft) iin the Bernese Alps, Swiss Oberland. Together with the Eiger and Jungfrau, it forms a highly recognizable group of mountains, visible from far away.

Sella lived in an era when geographical societies, exploration and mountaineering clubs, and mercantile (research) libraries proliferated in many towns and cities. The Sella family had helped found the Italian Alpine Club in 1863; a European equivalent of the AMC co-founded in 1876 by Charles E. Fay. The Alpine Club fraternity was a small, international network modeled after the first club of its type founded in London in 1857. Members corresponded with each other, sharing publications and information about guides, porters, and climbs in foreign lands. Such clubs provided scientific, ethnographic, and intellectual materials that were a valuable cultural asset for professionals and amateur enthusiasts alike. In their lecture's photographers, naturalists, explorers, and artists often used photographs and printed illustrations as a means of disseminating information about the latest artistic and scientific ventures.
