Kärnten and Osttirol, edited by Eduard Mussger. 200 pages of photographs with interspersed trilingual text. Klagenfurt: Mussger, 1952. Price, $2.50.

This book initiates a regional series issued under the title of “Sonniges Alpenland,” with further volumes on Austria to follow. The history is supplied by Hermann Braumüller and the poetry by Wilhelm Rudnigger, while the photographers bring to one’s attention areas of the Eastern Alps, particularly in Carinthia, that are little known to American tourists. The Gross Glockner and the Hochalmspitze are among the summits depicted; but the castles and churches, such as Hochosterwitz and Maria Saal, near Klagenfurt, should not be neglected by anyone visiting the area.
