Cafe Lehmitz. Photographs by Anders Petersen. Schirmer-Mosel, 1978. 89 pp. Quarto. Stiff wrappers in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Black-and-white reproductions printed in rich off-set litho. Likely a review copy. Laid in is a signed letter (in German) to a German radio personality from L. Schirmer, dated 1978, describing the contents of the book.

The true first edition of a classic of deeply felt social documentary. Swedish photographer Anders Petersen, began photographing this seedy cafe near the harbor in Hamburg--think of a Tom Waits song come to life--at the end of the 60s. As Parr & Badger write, what Petersen's images depict "should not be regarded as a freak show, even if many of his subjects were lonely, desperate, nasty, sad people, down on their luck. [He] captured what more distinguished names have failed to convey--the authentic whiff of down-beat urban life."
