The Dolomites, by C. Douglas Milner, xiv+105 pages of text, 150 photographs by the author (including colored frontispiece), six map-diagrams and end-paper map. London: Robert Hale, 1951. Price, 25/10.

This is one of the loveliest illustrated books recently published on the Dolomites. The illustrations are excellent. The author not only does justice to the mountains, but also shows many views of villages and towns. His pictures convey the atmosphere characteristic of the region, and the text supplies a good introduction to its history and to its charms for the walker and climber. The book is highly recommended to those who have visited the Dolomites and to those who contemplate making a visit there.
