Moore made extensive Alpine tours in the years 1860-81 including this one with Whymper and Horace Walker in 1864. The Alpine Club hold his later unpublished diaries, parts of which were incorporated into the 1902 Edition, including his account of the first ascent of the Brenva ridge on Mont Blanc. The 1902 Edition was preceeded only by the First Edition in 1867 of 100 copies which was for private circulation only. Very scarce.
