TRAVELS AMONGST THE GREAT ANDES OF THE EQUATOR.
By EDWARD WHYMPER. With Maps and 140 original Illustrations, drawn by

various artists and engraved by the author. 8vo, $6.00.

Edward Whymper's long-expected book, corresponding to his "Scrambles Amongst the Alps,"
is now ready. The value of the book, both as a narrative of thrilling adventure and as a record of
scientific discoveries, is such as to give it the widest popularity; and it will increase still further
the reputation of the author as the most daring and successful mountain-climber of his time, and as
a writer of singular vivacity. The number and character of the illustrations, 140 in all, make the
book an unusually attractive holiday gift.
