LOS COHETES DURARON TODO EL DIA - SIGNED BY PEDRO MEYER
Petroleos Mexicanos, Mexico City, MEXICO 1988 - 148pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. Text in Spanish. "Los cohetes duraron todo el dia" is noted Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer's 1988 socially conscious photo essay commissioned by the national petroleum company Pemex to coincide with its fiftieth anniversary. Due however to Meyer's dedication of the volume to Lazaro Cardenas, the socialist-leaning former president who established Pemex in 1938 as part of his nationalization of Mexican oil production (whose son also happened to be an opposition candidate to then-current president Carlos Salinas earlier in the year), the newly elected government seized nearly all the copies printed to put a stop to the book's distribution. A pristine copy of this uncommon and desirable document (cited on pages 198-199 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II") acquired directly from Pedro Meyer BOLDLY SIGNED by the photographer in black ink beneath the frontispiece image on the second preliminary. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
