Gait, mostly mountain and valley views, occasionally with figures, a total of approximately 180 gelatin silver prints, all but approximately 20 mounted as multiples to album leaf rectos and versos, neat ink captions in English to mounts, the majority 8 x 10cm and four or five to a page, four loose leaves with brief summaries of earlier expeditions loosely inserted, contemporary boards with cloth spine tie, a little rubbed, oblong folio. Other names identified in the notes include R.S. Morrish and Boardman. J.C. Gait is identified in the album once and otherwise by initials. (1)
