Description: First edition; numbered 68 of 500. This famous early collection of Ansel Adams photographs was taken along the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. Limited to 500 copies, each was hand-signed by the artist, with 50 tipped-in photographic reproductions. All plates in excellent condition.   "Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail" was compiled as a collection of Adams' work in an attempt to preserve Sequoia and Kings Canyon and have them declared as national parks - which happened two years after publication, in 1940, in part as a result of this book. This is a  classic book from one of America's foremost photographers and environmentalists.
