A great mountain explorer, and Alpine Club President, Freshfield climbed extensively in the Alps and Caucasus. In 1868, he explored the central Caucasus making the first ascent of Kazbek (16,546’), Elbruz (18,470’), and several other peaks. He returned to the Caucasus in 1887 and 1889 following which he wrote this book. A number of the photos are by Vittorio Sella.

Neate F64, Perret 1759.
