AUGUST SANDER

Antlitz der Zeit -- Face of our Time. Introduction by Alfred Döblin. Munich: Transmare and Kurt Wolff, 1929. 4° (297 x 225mm). 60 black and white photographs. Original integral wrappers, printed in black (small chips to extremities, light wear and light soiling, small area of restoration on front panel). Custom-made black buckram clamshell case.

THE RARE FIRST EDITION IN WRAPPERS. 'ONE OF THE GREAT DOCUMENTARY WORKS OF ALL TIMES... it would be difficult to overestimate the influence of this work on later photography, documentary, and otherwise' (101 Books). 'MANY OF HIS CLASSIC IMAGES ARE INCLUDED IN THIS SEMINAL PHOTOBOOK' (The Photobook). This penetrating work was seen as very dangerous when the Nazis came to power in 1933: copies still with the publisher were seized, and the printing plates were destroyed. 101 Books, pp.52-3; The Open Book, pp.84-5; The Photobook, p.124.
