A set of these classic photobooks from the Spanish Civil War. "The Spanish Civil War was an important conflict, not just because it was the first direct challenge to fascism, but also in terms of modern photojournalism. It witnessed the birth of the modern war photographer" (The Photobook). Bumping to the head and tails of the spines, and removed library sticker from one of the front endpapers, volume two with inoffensive library markings to the title and page 17, but overall a remarkably clean set. Extremely rare.
