Mountaineering.- Barry (Martin) Ascent to the Summit of Mont Blanc, 16th-18th of 9th Month (SEPTR.), 1834, first edition in book form, first issue with "dicovering" in line 11 on p.33 and offset "t" in footnote below, presentation copy from the author inscribed "The Author, to his friends Samuel & Maria Fox" at head of front free endpaper, 2 lithographed plates on india paper and mounted on thick paper, some light foxing and soiling, bookplate of Amos Perry, original boards, rubbed and lightly stained, rebacked, [Neate B49; Meckly 014b with "SEPTR." on title in upper case; Perret 0275], 8vo, [Earlham, privately printed by H.Teape & Sons for the author], [1835]. ⁂ First published in the Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal of January 1835. Although no priority is given between the issues it is clear this constitutes the earlier of the two states as the two errors on p.33 have been corrected in the other issue. There are also several differences in the first few lines on p.32.
