London: Spring Books, [1959]. Early Printing. Quarto, publisher's brown cloth, spine and boards gilt, oxblood endpapers, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

Czech journalist and author Jind ich Lion’s illustrated survey of Josefov, Prague's Jewish quarter. Lion details the early history of the settlement, its role as a European center of Jewish mysticism, and the birthplace of Franz Kafka, alongside numerous black-and-white (and a handful of color) photos by Czech photojournalist Jan Lukas. Living through two periods of totalitarianism, Lukas and his body of work have become legendary in the world of Czech photography. With fold-out list of plates. Unclipped dust jacket with moderate wear, and cellotape repairs to verso. Very good. Item #4320
