Book excerpt: Excerpt from Switzerland and the Adjacent Portions of Italy, Savoy, and Tyrol: Handbook for Travellers With improved facilities for travel, the number of visitors to Switzerland has greatly increased of late years, and mountaineering ambition has been proportionally stimulated. Summits once deemed well-nigh inaccessible are now scaled annually by travellers from all parts of the world. The achievements of the modern Alpine clubs have dimmed the memory of De Saussure, Auldjo, and the other pioneers of these icy regions, and even ladies now frequently vie with the stronger sex in their deeds of daring. The Handbook is based on the Editor's personal acquaintance with the places described, most of which he has carefully and repeat edly explored. This edition, which corresponds with the thirty third German edition, has been thoroughly revised, and furnished with the latest information obtainable. Its contents are divided into seven sections (i. North Switzerland; II. Central Switzer land, Lake oi Lucerne and Environs, and St. Gotthard; III. Bernese Oberland; IV. Western Switzerland, Lake of Geneva, Lower Rhone Valley; V. Chamonix, the Valais, and the adjacent Italian Alps; VI. South-eastern Switzerland, Grisons; VII. Lakes of North Italy), each of which may be separately removed from the book by the mountaineer or pedestrian who desires to minimize the bulk of his luggage. To each section is prefixed a list of the routes it contains, so that each forms an approximately complete. Volume apart from the general table of contents or the general index.
