Das Berner Oberland, by Adolph Schaer-Ris. 4to., 130 pages, including 60 pages of photo-illustrations, together with sketches by Victor Surbek. Berne: Urs Graf-Verlag, 1952. Price, Sw. Fr. 19.35.

This is the seventh in the series, reviewed earlier, of Swiss cantonal description, issued under the general title of “Das Volkserbe der Schweiz.” The Bernese Oberland comprises a large and diverse territory, and it remains only to say that the present volume is one of the most attractive. It covers Oberhasli, the Lüschinen, Kander, and Saanen valleys, as well as the lakes of Brienz and Thun.
