First edition of this remarkable Sierra Club photobook documenting Glacier Bay in Alaska, with 58 fine folio photographs by Bohn, some in color, a few double-page, as well as in-text reproductions of historical images and documents.
Bohn's "photography in the Monument started in 1962 when, with six other climbing companions, Bohn entered the Fairweather Range where the expedition made first ascents of Lituya Mountain and Mount Quincy Adams. He visited the Fairweathers of Glacier Bay National Monument again in 1963, and then followed with three seasons in the fjord country of the Monument. In the five-year period, he spent forty weeks in the field, a great deal of that time in a tent." The Sierra Club Books Exhibit Format Series—of which this book is part—helped shape many of the campaigns that made our Western national parks.
Book fine, price-clipped dust jacket with a bit of dust soiling, near-fine.
