Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trailby Ansel Adams
Synopses & Reviews
A rare jewel has been discovered in the oeuvre of Ansel Adams. Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail, originally published in an edition of only 500 copies in 1938, is an extraordinary publication in many respects. Adams, at the age of 36, was commissioned to prepare a book of his photographs taken along the world-famous John Muir Trail as a tribute to Pete Starr, a young American mountaineer (and son of a Sierra Club president) killed in a climbing accident. Composed of 50 photographs of the Sierra Nevada--many never published again--the book is an exquisite portrait of the mountain world of the High Sierra in California. When first published, it set a new standard for fine photographic reproduction in book form. Little, Brown takes great pride in announcing a new edition of this magnificent book.
Originally published in 1936 and limited to only 500 copies, this is a stunningly beautiful collection of Ansel Adams' photographs of the Sierra made early in his legendary career.
