HIMALAYAS KARAKORAM Abruzzi

Lot 2164 Details

Description
VITTORIO SELLA. Abruzzi's Camp at Tolti, 1909, Sella number HK SC1003. 11.5x15.3" gelatin silver print, printed c. 1909, mounted on 14x18" heavy gray board. Inscribed in white ink on mount recto: Himalayas / Abruzzi's Camp at Tolti: Embossed with Vittorio Sella stamp in lower right of print. Inscribed in pencil on mount verso: 000 (2003 catalog / 112/29; verso small oval white label with red border: Gift of / Miss Anna Chase

In 1909, as Sella was approaching his fiftieth birthday, he and his long time climbing friend the Duke of the Abruzzi, Luigi Amedeo di Savoia, embarked on their most ambitious journey yet, to climb K2 in the Western Himalaya Karakoram range, and to satisfy the Duke's primary intention to set a new high-altitude record for a man to have climbed to. In Tibetan, the name Karakoram mean "black gravel," and to reach it meant crossing the vast mountainous region between Kashmir and Chinese Turkestan, a complex system of ranges, immense tablelands, intricate valleys and mighty rivers. The Duke wanted to determine how high human beings could climb and survive, a question that could only be solved by direct experience.
Condition
