Leuchtende Berge

Publication Year: 1956.

Leuchtende Berge. A book of colored photographs of the Alps, by Jos. Jul. Schaetz. 72 pages, 28 colored photographs. Munich: F. Bruckmann, 1954.

This is a very fine collection of colored photographs of the Alps by the writer and others. The pictures are imaginative and beautifully reproduced. They range from studies of flowers, waterfalls, peaceful lakes and mountain valleys, to excellent pictures of high peaks, glaciers and rock faces. "Suitable” captions accompany many of them, and Schaetz has written a short preface about mountaineering enthusiasts from Petrarch to the skiers and mountaineers of the present day.
