What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce

An excellent copy of this book on skiing theory and techniques compiled by photographer Arnold Fanck and Hannes Schneider, in the original German. 

A fascinating volume on skiing, the correct methods and techniques, and the application of the snowshoes in Alpine cross country. 

Profusely illustrated with two hundred and forty two individual images throughout and one hundred and twenty six cinematographic lines enclosed to the rear. Collated, complete. 

The photographs are taken from the omonimous silent documentary by Arnold Fanck, which was first showed in 1919/20, and can be considered the first full length documentary in the world.
