Dolomiti Occidentali, by Silvio Saglio. 269 pages, with 82 drawings, 28 photographs, and 5 maps. Milan: Touring Club Italiano, 1949. Price, $3.50.
These two guidebooks are models of their kind, each dealing with a limited region. The first details the climbing between Madonna di Campiglio and Trento, the massif culminating in the Cima Tosa. It does not include the more westerly situated Presanella and Adamello groups. The second book does not offer high climbing but is a pedestrian’s guide from refuge to refuge, limited to the western Dolomites: Marmolada, Sella, Pale di San Martino, Sasso Lungo, Alpe di Siusi, Catinaccio (Rosengarten) and Latemar. The Cortina and Sexten peaks are excluded.
