(1) The Natural History of Ice and Snow: Illustrated from the Alps (2) The Art and Sport of Alpine Photography

Abstract

(1) DR. TUTTON'S work on the Alps is a valuable contribution to the literature on ice and snow. It will appeal in particular to those alpinists who have at least a fair general knowledge of physical science and to those others who visit the Alps of Europe with but the common desire to enjoy a holiday there, and at the same time to see and understand the most striking of the developments of snow, ice, and stream in that marvellous country.
