"Our Motherland", photo book by the State Geographic Literature Publishing House, 1957 edition.
Massive 11" x 13.5" format hard cover, 312 pp. The Russian text is fully translated into German, French, and English (in the back of the book.) The photos are an equal mix of wild nature, countryside and city architecture.

This impressive publication propagandizes the vastness of the USSR with its wide range of climatic zones and landscapes as well as idealized version of Soviet life. It was apparently intended for both Soviet citizens and foreign tourists, so it is practically devoid of the usual monuments to Soviet leaders.

In very good condition. The cover shows wear to the corners and edges and some minor spots, however it is still very presentable. The binding is completely sound although its rubberized fabric has a minor separation at the bottom end of the spine, easy to repair with some paper glue if desired. The. The internal pages are generally very clean with only mild age toning and a few small spots to the last few pages, not detractive.
