REVOLUTION IN HUNGARY: The 1956 Budapest Uprising

New York: Thames & Hudson, 2006. First Edition. Hardcover. Lessing (1923-2018) was the first photographer to arrive in Hungary, and he documented the short-lived uprising and its aftermath in a series of world-famous photographs, reproduced here in stunning duotone. They bring to life once more the hope and euphoria of the first days of the revolt, so soon to be followed by the pain and punishment of its brutal suppression. 190 duotone illustrations, with texts by George Konrad, Francois Fejto, Erich Lessing, and Nicholas Bauquet. Inscribed by Lessing to cinematographer Virgil Mirano on the half-title, with an invitation to a reception at USC's Doheny Memorial Library laid in. Oblong quarto. Original black paper-covered boards, with gilt titles. Some mild edgewear to the boards and the pictorial dust jacket; else very good or better. Very good / Very good. Item #68697
