“When there is a railroad to Timbuctoo, and another through the central regions of Asia,” Leslie Stephen added, a later generation “will feel on a large scale the same regret for the old days, when the earth contained an apparently inexhaustible expanse of the unknown regions, as the Alpine traveler now feels on a very diminutive scale.”
- Leslie Stephen, Alpine Club President in 1868 (from the book, “To the Edges of the Earth” by Edward J. Larson)
