Josef Koudelka/Robert Delpire: Le Matin. Four folded inserts (16 pp ea.) with 1968 Prague Invasion Photos), published from August 17-August 20, 1981 (total of 62 photos in the four issues, NOT credited). Designed and edited by Robert Delpire in collaboration with Magnum. Texts by Milan Kundera and Petr Kral. Unbound newsprint.
An early appearance of Koudelka's famed Prague invasion photos, still before they could be credited to his name! An amazing Cold War document! It was not until the publication of Koudelka's Photo Poche book, around the time of his 1984 exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London, that these iconic invasion pictures were published under his own name. An astoundingly rare, complete set!
Solidly Fine; fragile newsprint showing some age darkening; with no errant creases or tears.
