HIMALAYAS Camping at 19,700 ft Johnsong La 1899

Lot 2205 Details

Description
VITTORIO SELLA. Camp on Glacier. About 19,700 feet., 1899, Sella number HS 103. 10.7X14.5" silver gelatin print, printed 1901, mounted on 14x18" heavy brown board. Embossed with Vittorio Sella stamp in print lower right. Inscribed in black ink mount recto: Encamping upon the Glacier. Inscribed in pencil mount verso: 103/ HS 103.

During this part of the tour, they had encountered much bad weather preventing any high mountain ascents. Signer Vittorio Sella called me back to inspect some half dozen of our men, apparently in a very sorry plight, and proclaiming themselves unable to move. With the help of his brother, Signor Erminio Sella, we looked the invalids carefully over. In some cases, their feet, owing to a reluctance to wear the native boots we had provided, were more or less frostbitten; in others the altitude and the cold had induced various ailments. Signor Erminio bound up the sore feet in thick cloths, and some stimulant was given all round. p. 162-163. Round Kangchenjunga: A Narrative of Mountain Travel and Exploration, by Douglas Freshfield, London, Edward Arnold 1903
Condition
Excellent: Minor wear, edge and corner wear. Mount has edge and corner wear, marks and mount verso has tape marks.
