Südtirol, by Josef Weingartner. 170 pages, with 33 color plates, 100 text illustrations by Robert Zinner. Vienna: Adolf Holz hausens Mfg., 1950. Price, $5.00.

In a readable text Weingartner describes the Eisach and Puster valleys, the Dolomites, the castles of the Vintschgau, and the areas subtending Bolzano and Merano. But the importance of the book rests in the pictures by Zinner, whose little studio is in the garden of the Hotel Grifone at Bolzano. They bring back memories of the Brenner road and of the pageant of history that has flowed through it and its lateral tributaries, making for splendid recording.
