Ir I1i The Hubbard Glacier Cliff, Compared with the Masonic Temple, Chicago The Glaciers of Alaska T HIS volume gives the technical results of three years' study of some of the glaciers of Alaska by the National Geographic Society expeditions of 1909, 1910, and 1911. The glaciers of Alaska are the largest in the world, excepting, of course, the polar regions, and for beauty and grandeur are unsurpassed. The National Geographic Society's investigations have developed many inter esting facts.

Copies will be sent prepaid to members of the Society in the United States for $5 per volume; abroad (in Postal Union), $5.50.
