Peru from the Air

Nature volume 128, page 172 (01 August 1931) | Download Citation



THE value of aeroplane photography and surveying has been well demonstrated in archo-logy and forestry, and its special service to the geography of rugged and waterless countries is illustrated by the volume of photographs of Peru, taken by Lieut. G. R. Johnson, when chief photographer to the Peruvian Naval Air Service, and issued by the American Geographical Society. The volume includes 150 well-selected photographs, each 8½ in. by 6½ in., and six sketch maps. It has an excellent introduction by R. R. Platt, head of the Department of Hispanic-American Research of that Society.
