Uitgeverij Contact/De Bezige Bij, 1947
Half cloth with gilded title on the black spine and once again on the gray boards, pictorial dust jacket, 28.5 x 23 cm, 128 pages, black and white photography. Dutch.
With a Dutch text by Max Nord, and over 100 black and white photographs from some of the most recognizable names in Dutch photography: Cas Oorthuys, Emmy Andriesse, Charles Breyer, C Holtzappel, Ad Windig, Kryn Taconis, Hans Sibbelee, Marius Meyboom, F Lemaire and others. With the notoriously hard to find (complete) jacket printed on leftover paper. Still not the best or perfect copy, but a dealer who has been in the trade longer than I have been alive told it was the the best one she had ever seen.
Book in very good condition, with some minor discoloration to the endpapers. Upper edges of the boards with some minor brown spots.
Dust jacket complete, but with some wear. Spine discolored, with some moisture to the bottom and a small tear to the top. Small tear (amateurishly) repaired with plastic tape. Some rubbing along the extremities. A small scratch to the back and a few tiny tears along the edges.
