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 this 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."

Near Fine+; typical tanning around extremities; some delamination to plastic coating of wraps; tiny tear to upper corner of jacket.
