Notes

First edition, first impression, with the scarce dust jacket, and inscribed by Riefenstahl on the frontispiece recto, "Herrn Architekten Becker, herrlich gedwimet, Leni Riefenstahl, Mais 1934". This is Riefenstahl's first book, in which she gives an account of her involvement with director Arnold Fanck's pioneering mountaineering films such as Der Heilige berg (1926), Der Grosser Sprung (1927), Stürme über dem Montblanc (1930) and S.O.S. Eisberg (1933).
