RUBAKIN, N. A. Razskazy o gorakh. Saint Petersburg, Knigoizdatelstskoe Tovarishchestvo "Prosveshchenie", [c. 1914].

8vo. Original cloth, illustrated panel mounted on front cover; pp. [vi], 150; highly illustrated with wood-engravings and after photographs; binding a trifle rubbed, apart from a few minor spots internally a very good copy; contemporary ownership inscription in blue crayon, dated 1920, on front fly-leaf.
First edition. A book for the general public; nevertheless, extremely rare, on the lure of mountains, Russian and far away, their geology, glaciology, formations, peaks and gorges of mountain ranges. The author is most unlikely the Russian revolutionary, bibliophile and founder of the science of bibliopsychology Nikolai Aleksandrovich Rubakin, but a popular writer on ethnography, and Siberia.
