Alpstein, by Walter Zuberbuhler. Teufen (Appenzell) : Arthur Nigli Ltd., 1956. 104 pages; 74 photographs by Herbert Maeder, end-paper map. Price Sw. fr. 18.80.

The canton of Appenzell, including the district around the Alpstein, forms the characteristic countryside of N. E. Switzerland. A study of its people forms the introduction to this attractive picture book, the text being in German, with English translation. The photography is exceptionally fine.
