Vojaci v Horach [Soldiers in the Mountains].
Prague: Nakladatelstvi Nase Vojsko, 1947.
4to (264 x 207 mm), pp.. 94 black-and-white photographs, text by Jenicek and Frantisek Modroch. Plain cream wrappers; light handling marks. Black-and-white photo-illustrated dust-jacket, white, text in blue, black, and unprinted white; short tears to top edge, sides rubbed and lightly soiled, small chip to upper side at head of spine. Inscribed by Jenicek in blue ink to first page. Very good.
First edition, a presentation copy to a judge of the wrappered issue. Jenicek, who was himself a Major, is perhaps best known for Dvacet Let and Cesko-Slovenska Armada, his two 1938 books on the Czechoslovakian army which were designed by Ladislav Sutnar. In this book he follows an army ski unit as they complete a course of training at a base in the mountains and then set out on an expedition.
