The Rainbow Mountains Viewbook is styled after the historical "viewbooks" produced by Byron Harmon in the early Twentieth Century.
Each image is featured on a page with caption as the only text. The pages are bound with a laced and tied chord.
The book may be kept in it's integrity or images may be removed for display purposes, hence the moniker, "viewbook".
This is a viewbook of images by Byron Harmon from his 1911 joint expedition with The Alpine Club of Canada and the Smithsonian Institute. The journey including the first circuit of Mt. Robson and the country around it, as well as Yellowhead Pass and Maligne Lake.
The expedition resulted in the first survey of the region as well as the first systematic natural history survey of the northern Rockies.
In all, thirty peaks were climbed, most of them first ascents.
The introduction and captions are drawn from the accounts of this expedition in the Canadian Alpine Journal for 1912.
