At left is a 1906 first of George & Ashley Abraham's own Rock Climbing in North Wales, the second book in the trilogy, and next to it a 1911 third edition of the first book issued, Owen Glynne Jones' Rock-Climbing in the English Lake District, which contains a substantial appendix by the Abrahams.

The sons of a Keswick photographer, the rock climbing Abrahams had initially been asked by Jones to supply images for his text. These two volumes sold at £190 and £200, but the third title, Ashley Abraham's Rock Climbing in Skye of 1908, was not present.
