Extremely rare, original issue of National Geographic Magazine for May 29, 1891 (volume 3) 

Whole issue on AN EXPEDITION TO MOUNT ST. ELIAS, ALASKA, by Israel C. Russell. 

Chapters are: 
Previous Explorations in the St. Elias Region.

Sketch of the Geology of the St. Elias Region. 
Glaciers of the St. Elias Region. 
Height and Position of Mount St. Elias.

One of the most important volumes for the advanced Alaska mountaineering library, and one of the most difficult to obtain, especially in this condition! 
National Geographic Magazine was started only a few years before this issue, and there were very few subscribers in 1891.  This may be your only chance to acquire this mountain climbing classic in this condition.
