MT ST. ELIAS ALASKA from Newton Glacier 1897

Lot 2226 Details

Description
VITTORIO SELLA. Mt. Saint Elias from Newton Glacier,1897, Sella number E 71, 7.2x9.4" collodion print, printed 1898, mounted on 11x14" heavy brown board. Embossed with Vittorio Sella stamp in lower right of print. Inscribed in black ink mount recto on white label: Mt Saint Elias / from / Newton Glacier. Inscribed in pencil mount verso: Mt Saint Elias / from Newton Glacier.

In 1897 Sella joined the Duke of Abruzzi on an expedition to scale Mt. Saint Elias on the Alaskan Yukon border, the fourth highest peak in North America (18,008 ft). Given its remote location the journey proved incredibly arduous, especially since Sella took two cameras weighing ten and twenty pounds and packs of glass plate negatives. These were affected by Alaska's high humidity resulting in a grayish cast. Sella and the Duke scaled the peak as Sella made highly significant photographs of the region.
Condition
Very Good: dirt, abrasions, marks, edge and corner wear. Mount has edge and corner wear, is dirty with tape marks mount verso.
