(FUSCO, PAUL). FUSCO, PAUL & NORMAN MAILER - RFK FUNERAL TRAIN - THE LIMITED FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY PAUL FUSCO

Title: RFK FUNERAL TRAIN - THE LIMITED FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY PAUL FUSCO
Description: London, Magnum Photos & Umbrage Editions., 1999, First Edition 1/350. Pictorial Wrappers, Oblong 8vo, np (138pp), 63 color illustrations. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "On June 8, 1968, Robert Kennedy's coffin was put on a train twenty cars long in New York and taken slowly to Washington, D.C. for burial in the Arlington Memorial Cemetery. Paul Fusco, then a staff photographer for Look, was on that train, and the pictures he took of people who lined the tracks along the way fill this moving book. These emotional photographs, many never-before-seen, remember the urgency and tragedy of Bobby Kennedy's assassination and the moving farewell from hundreds of thousands of people who stood patiently in the searing heat along roadsides down the east coast to watch his funeral train pass slowly by just as Abraham Lincoln's had one hundred and three years before". A bright, most handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon 1999 Magnum Photos true first edition (cited on pages 46-47 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II" and pages 118-119 of Fred Ritchin and Carole Naggar's "Magnum Photobook: A Catalogue Raisonné") of this supremely moving volume limited to three hundred and fifty copies in wrappers printed on a Xerox Docucolor 100 Digital Color Press (with one of nine different front covers) NUMBERED (067/350) AND BOLDLY SIGNED "Paul Fusco" in silver marker on the title page. An announcement for the 2001 Leica Gallery New York exhibition of Kennedy images by Paul Fusco and Jacques Lowe has been laid in.
