THIS LOT CONSISTS OF TWO BOOKS: Gypsies by Josef Koudelka and Circus by Christian Staub.

Gypsies. Josef Koudelka. Introduction by Robert Delpire. Aperture, Millerton, New York, 1975. First edition. Oblong quarto. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. Unpaged. A haunting portrait of gypsy life emerges from the black-and-white images; Koudelka refused to caption his photographs, believing they should stand without commentary as raw captured moments. At the rear of the book is a five-page historical essay about the gypsies by Willy Guy. A very good copy, with minimal edge rubbing and a slight wave to the text block.

Circus. A Book of Photographs by Christian Staub. With Sketches by Hanny Fries. Introduced by Grock. John Lane, The Bodley Head, London, 1957. First edition. Quarto. Yellow cloth stamped in red; photo-illustrated dustjacket. Preliminaries + introduction + list of plates in English and German + 104 plates (photographs and sketches). A wonderful collection of images of English and Continental circuses, showing performances and behind-the-scenes moments. Staub was a Swiss-born photographer who studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Zurich, and worked as a freelance reporter and photographer. A fine copy; the dustjacket has some edge chips and creases that do not significantly detract.
