Eric Newby, who has considerable credibility as an entertaining traveler, has written what seems to be a wonderful set of brief vignettes on some of the more important ascents in Mountaineering. Each essay provides a succinct and uplifting description, along with enough pictures to bring joyfulness if you have been there, or if you wish you had. I've climbed a few of the ones in Europe and it's kind of nice to know who went before you.
