New York; (1981): Abrams. Quarto. Item #025495
96 pages, signed by Eisenstaedt, photographs taken both during the Third Reich as well as in 50 years later. Max Schmeling as the hero of the Nazi public and a picture of him at age 75 as President of German Coca-Cola looking remarkably young. A 1928 photograph of Josef von Sternberg, with his wife Marlene Dietrich as The Blue Angel was being celebrated with pictures taken of her by him again after five decades. Many of the unusual sites in Germany as well as leaders in literature (Mann, Gunther Grass, Gerhardt Hauptmann). Bound in black cloth, spine lettering silver. A near fine copy in a very good pictorial dust jacket with spine a bit toned. Very nice.
