Excerpt from The Hundred Wonders of the World, and of the Three Wonders of Nature: Described According to the Latest and Best Authorities, and Illustrated by Engravings

Tan is the most majestic of the Andes, and has a ciren lar summit, feet, or above four miles high. On the shores of the South Sea, after the long ruins of winter, when the mistiness of the air has suddenly diminished, Chimboraso appears like a cloud in the horizon. It (16 taches itself from the neighbouring summits, and raises its lofty head over the whole chain of the Andes. Travellers who have approached the summits of Mont Blanc and Mont Rose, are alone capable of feeling the effect of such vast, majestic, and solemn scenery.

The bulk of' Chimborazo isso enormous, that the part which the eye embraces at once, near the limit of the snows, is feet, or four miles and a third in breadth. The extreme rarity of the strata of air, across which the summits of the Andes are seen, contributes greatly to the splendour of the snow, and the magical efi'ect of its re¿ec tion. Under the tropics, at a height of feet, up wards of three miles, the azure vault of the heavens up. Pears of an indi tint; while, in so pure and transparent an atmosphere, outlines of the mountains detach them selves from the sky, and produce an efi'ect at once sub~ lime, awful, and profoundly impressive.
