Before Clarence's Time - Dr Henry in the Merveilles

Written by Marcus Bicknell on .

Gallica headingMax Leonard, mountain research, biker and Clarence Bicknell fan, write today to tell us "I found a digital copy of Dr Henry’s Ancien Glacier Métamorphosé en Monuments Carthaginois (1877), which was referenced by Clarence, in Gallica – I’m not sure when it was digitised, but nobody else seems to have found it, so I’m guessing it’s fairly recently. I’ve used Gallica before, they are digitising a huge amount and new things are always coming up."

The article is entitled "Une Excursion au Lac des Merveilles". Written in 1877, it was a year before Clarence first came to Bordighera and some 20 years before he found the Merveilles and made them his summer passion for 12 years to 1906.
