Franciaorszagban Kepeim Keszult / France in Pictures
N.p.: N.p., 1958-1959. Appears to be 7 captioned photographs missing from photo-corners, else near fine in string bound quarter leather boards.. Unique hand-assembled photo album. Oblong quarto. Twenty page album filled with 94 tipped-in or photo-corner attached black and white images of four young men touring Paris and the Marne in the late 1950s. The photographs vary in size from 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches to 1 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches; some pictures have been trimmed into irregular shapes and pasted into designed layouts. Images depict what appear to be two gay couples on holiday; the overall mood of summer and freedom is striking, as are the whimsical hand-lettered captions (written in Hungarian) and drawings on first page. A rare example of candid and casual snapshots of a homosexual couples from the 1950s, artistically presented.
