HIMALAYAS SELLA EXPEDITION CAMP on the Zemu Glacier

Lot 2194 Details

Description
VITTORIO SELLA. Camp below the Moraine, Zemu Glacier about 15,000 feet., 1899, Sella number HS 53. 7.4x9.4" collodion print, printed 1901, mounted on 10x12" heavy brown board. Embossed with Vittorio Sella stamp in lower right of print. Inscribed in black ink on mount recto Camp Back of left-hand Moraine of Zemu Glacier at 5200 m Inscribed in pencil mount verso: 53 / HS 53

These high peaks rise up from the 15,000 foot Zemu Glacier and the expedition camp in the foreground shows the wet terrain.

"All the pictorial efforts that have been made to give an idea of the sublimity and beauty of the upper regions…and their ineffectual fires beside the photographs of Mr. Vittorio Sella. . ..for the purpose of bringing down to us the pictured marvels of those terrible heights. . ..It testifies in a most convincing manner to his skill, his taste, his industry, and his courage. . ..These uncommon pictures afford vivid glimpses of the wonderful and unknown world of snow and ice which exists in the high [Mountains], a world of terrible desolation and isolation and of awful beauty and majesty. Climbers have hitherto been the only ones to see these things, and it is the distinction of Mr. Sella that he has brought such a rare sensation within the reach of all. There is a peculiar and inexplicable fascination about the grim Siberian wastes of the wind-swept peaks and the lonely upper slopes of the snow-covered [peaks] which none but the fanatical mountaineer may fully appreciate, and which the spice of danger only augments. . ."
Condition
Good. Minor wear, small black marks, scrapes. Mount has corner edge wear and tape residue verso.
