First edition, first printing. Original photo-illustrated stapled wrappers. An excellent near fine copy with only light rubbing to the binding extremities. Clean and bright throughout. A superb and little known photographic work capturing the crowds at the New Orleans Mardi Gras. The photographer ignores the floats and parade, instead aiming his lens at the spectators, capturing the real spirit of this festival as well as providing a remarkable, if not unique documentation of the inhabitants of one of America's most glittering cities.
Unaccountably scarce. OCLC records just one copy of this edition at the University of New Orleans and a copy of a 1972 edition at Michigan State University Libraries.
