Love on the Left Bank
Ed Van der Elsken

Edition : First / London / Andre Deutsch / 1956 / Hardback. / VG+ / VG+
Small 4to, 110pp. Black cloth in photographic dustwrapper. Clean and tight with a little wear to dustwrap which is also a little creased. Some of the photo plates are foxed, with moisture scuffing, but overall it's not too bad, and still a nice complete copy. Un-price clipped.

Rarely seen in any condition, Elksen's Love on the Left Bank is one of the classics of 20th century photography. Featuring 'Ann' (Vali Myers) and a motley crew of other beat types, the book documents life in Paris in the early fifties (i.e. when it was good). Very new wave. Amazing stuff.
