First Edition in original dust jacket. Beige cloth boards with red star on cover, red and black lettering on spine. No fraying or wear, but some fading from moisture to board edges. No musty smell or mildew. Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean, with two previous owner names neatly penned on front free endpaper. Text block edges are clean red top-stained. Illustrated with many beautiful half-tone plates. 298 pages with Appendix. Dust jacket is not price clipped, has some age-toning, edge chips and short closed tears. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Spurred by a premonition of history about to made, and armed with six hundred pounds of photographic equipment, Margaret Bourke-White, one of America's leading photographers, arrived in Moscow in may, 1941. When the Germans attacked, two months later, the Soviet government issued a proclamation that anyone found with a camera would be shot on sight. After a two-weeks siege of officialdom, Miss Bourke-White was awarded a photographer's "passport" - the only one given to a non-Russian, and from then on the shutters of her five cameras clicked unceasingly. This book, illustrated with almost a hundred of her best shots, records the ordeal of the Russian people as seen through the eyes and expert camera lens of one of America's finest photographers.
