Chisholm’s White Mountain Guide was originally copyrighted in 1880, though revised versions were frequently released in the following years. Our copy is from 1915. The book provides a survey of the White Mountains area, noting points of interest and travelling tips. There are photographs of significant places as well as fold-out maps. The book also contains a listing of all the summer hotels and boarding houses operating at the time. The front and back pages are filled with advertisements, which provide an amusing look at the period.
