Swiss Mountain Climbs

Evidence

"My early reading had been confined to the work of the pioneers, and in consequence it never occurred to me that big mountains coud be climbed without guides.[...] I had acquired a copy of Abraham"s ""Swiss Mountain Climbs"" which set out in depressing detail the official tariffs of the great peaks, the study of which acted as a constant check on my ambitions."
