Notes

First edition, first printing, of this dramatic photo book. Fischer's work was described by the Skiing Heritage Journal in 1998 as "a fine record of the American ski world in transition to the almost exclusively alpine sport today", which captured "the relaxed and spacious feel of alpine skiing in the 1930s and 1940s". It is uncommon in the dust jacket.
