Notes: Simple brown printed wraps, sunned a bit along edges, crimped and creased a bit but clean and sturdy. Czech-language work of photo-journalism by Fran Krasovec. Gift inscription in pen at title page. Tall quarto format, measuring 9 1/4" x 11 1/2" in width and height, respectively. Complete in 150 pp. and with black-and-white photographs of flora and fauna, the Czech countryside, children, shepherds and sheep, but missing pp. 51-52, and pp. 53-54 are present but detached. Of great interest and that makes up for this loss is the insertion of a two-page list of names/titles of the 150 duotone photographs but translated into English, thus "Heralds of Spring," "The birches are rustling," "First pasture (grazing)," and so on. A fetching, nostalgic look at Czech culture and countryside, quite nice.
