VITTORIO SELLA WEST SPUR OF GASHERBRUM 1909 Spectacular

Lot 2178 Details

Description
VITTORIO SELLA. West Spur of Gusherbrum[sic], from Upper Baltoro Glacier, 1909, Sella number HK 253 (210). 15.5x11.4" gelatin silver print, printed c. 1909, mounted on 14x18" heavy brown paper. Inscribed in white ink on mount recto: Himalayas / (Cashmere) / West Spur of Gusherbrum [sic] from Upper Baltoro Glacier

"To the north of the Gasherbrum, on the continuation of the same range, the great rounded domes of Broad Peak rise above the last spurs of the right wall of the Baltoro, which still project in front of us." KARAKORAM & WESTERN HIMALAYA 1909 BY FILIPPO DE FILIPPI. NY DUTTON 1912 p. 213

The Baltoro Glacier 39 miles in length, is the world's second longest non-polar glacier in the Shigar district Gilgit-Baltistan of Northern Pakistan.

They were situated at a huge glacial crossroads of Godwin Austen Glacier, surrounded by Broad Peak (26,414 ft.), K2 (28,251 ft.), the Golden Throne (23,990 ft.), Bride Peak (25,148 ft), and Mitre Peak (19,718 ft.). K2 rose like a pyramid of rock 12,000 feet high from the base of the glacier to the summit. The impression made by the extraordinary landscape, wrote Filippo, "was so strong, so moving, that no words can convey it to the reader. It was like no other experience, it provoked no recollections or comparisons. So inconceivably vast are the structural lines of the landscape, that the idea comes into one's mind of being in the workshop of nature, and of standing before the primeval chaos and cosmos of a world as yet unvisited by the phenomenon of life."
