1 Schmiedbauer, Alois. BEAUTIFUL OLD SALZBURG.
Verlag fur Wirtschaft und Kultur, Salzburg, Austria, 1954. 
XVI (text and captions), 48 pp sepiatone photographs, 9 5/16" H, hard cover in dust jacket. "....a new book of photographs, carefully selected to show the rich variety of Salzburg's beauty. The intentionally brief introduction and the complementar y notes on the illustrations give a good survey of the history and artistic development of this old seat of the Prince-Archbishops and its transformation into a festival town. These four dozen photographs are produced with a delicate 'exp e r t i s e ' f a r-removed from any cheap effects. They capture much of the magic atmosphere of Salzburg. Often an entirely new view-point has been found, which reveals some hitherto hidden aspects of this city whose proud and honoured monuments b ea r el oq ue nt wi tn ess to the common history of a long time of princely rulers and worthy burghers....Whether it is a shimmering landscape, the spacious squares of the archbishops or the huddled lanes of old houses, the master hand has been abl e t o mak e a ge nui n e p ort rait, not confining himself to a mere visual reproduction but going beyond the actual field of vision to give us the very essence of an inner experience...." Boards slightly bowed, two tiny foxing marks on top of tex tblo ck . D ust jack et h as ver y li ght edge wear, light edge wrinkling/creasing, minor browning, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good 
Price: 17.50 USD
