A.M.C. White Mountain Guide. Sixteenth Edition. Published by the Appalachian Mountain Club, 5 Joy St., Boston, Mass., 1960. 494 pages, 17 maps. $4.50.

This sixteenth edition of a guidebook first published in 1907 has been completely revised since the last (1955) edition. A major change in arrangement puts the most visited regions, starting with the Presidential Range, at the beginning of the book. The maps are folded differently, making reference to them more convenient; the titles are printed so that they can be read without unfolding the map. An enlarged Franconia map in a frontcover pocket as well as the usual large-scale Mount Washington map cover the most frequently traveled White Mountain trails. The usual smaller maps adequately portray the rest of the region.
