Note
  • English translation of Jules Michelet's La montagne
  • Translator's preface signed: W.H. Davenport Adams
  • Text illustrated with 54 illustrations, 14 of which are full-page, by Percival Skelton
  • Includes index
  • "'The mountain' continues the series of analogous books, whose publication commenced in 1856--'The bird,' 'The insect,' 'The sea.' That year was the starting-point of a movement which is still in progress, and shall not be arrested. The public from that epoch has felt an entirely new interest in Natural History....The greater portion of the present volume springs from our own travels, and relates what we ourselves have seen. It does not interfere with great scientific labours, with the all-instructive works of the Schachts or Schlagentweits. It derives its interest from our frieindly relations with that lofty nature...."--Author's preface
