Portrat Einer Epoche. Hans de Vries and Peter Hunter-Salomon. Verlag Ullstein, Frankfurt and Berlin, 1963. First edition. Quarto. Cloth in photo-illustrated dustjacket. 216 pp. + xxi.

The (true) first edition of the best modern monograph on the work of Erich Salomon, who is frequently credited with popularizing concealed-camera photo-reportage. Salomon documented the movers and shakers of the late 1920's and 1930's in their milieu, including political, cultural, and historical figures. The velvety-rich gravure printing in this edition makes it far preferable to the later editions with halftone photographs.

When World War II began Salomon left Germany for Holland, however he was eventually deported to Auschwitz, where he died in 1944. This was the first monograph of his work published following his death and it is now scarce.

A fine copy; dustjacket has some edge tears or creases (some repaired with 'invisible' archival tape on reverse), some with small losses, and a repair from reverse side at the top edge of front panel and spine visible for about one-half by three-quarters of an inch. In the publisher's original cardboard slipcase which shows minor handling but is sound.
