Südtirol, by J. G. Oberkofler. 157 pages of full-page photographs by Hugo Atzwanger, with interspersed sections of text. Innsbruck-Vienna: Tyrolia-Verlag, 1950. Price, $3.00.

South Tyrol has many names, among them The Land of Mountains and Glaciers, the Land of the Dolomites and the Vineyards. There is a magic in the way it draws one, and a longing to return will sweep over anyone casting an eye through such a book. The views of the central Dolomites, adjacent to the Schlern and Rosengarten, are particularly satisfying.
