New York: Aperture, 1981. 1st Edition. Oblong quarto, publisher's photo-illustrated stiff paper wraps.
First edition of Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas’s monograph. Meisalas captured the 1979 Sandinista insurrection against longtime dictator Anastasio Somoza over the course of one summer month, with the resulting series becoming an iconic work of photojournalism. Illustrated with color and black-and-white plates; with a map, and chronological history of Nicaragua. Published simultaneously in hardcover and paperback (as here). Scratch to upper wrap, light edgewear. Very good. Item #6370
