Edited by Karl Fischer

This admirably produced volume (Oslo : Mortensen, 18s.) is-one of the most intelligent examples of national publicity that has been produced.. It contains about 450 photographs, and about seventy short Chapters, designed to cover every side of modern Norwegian life, from industry to art and sport, and succeeds in giving a remarkably clear outline of the country's characteristics. Many of the photographs are remarkable and all are useful fcir the prospective traveller, and, although space for written information seems in certain places to have been cramped by emphasis on pictorial repre- sentation, none of the space available has been wasted.
