Zurich: Manesse Verlag, 1956. First Edition. New / very good +. Item #165
First Printing (and correct First) preceding the American edition by one year, one of 6,000 copies printed. About Fine in a Very Good+ jacket. The book has a discreet vertical crease running along the right side of the front free endpaper, else Fine. The jacket bears a little mild creasing along the top edge, with a touch of very shallow chipping at the crown of the spine. Spine panel lightly soiled, and two short, closed tears are present on the front panel at opposite ends of the front hinge. A sort of photographic essay about the North African tribe, with the text by Bowles (in German) coupled with Haeberlin's masterful and candid photographs. Considerably scarcer than its English language counterpart. (Miller, A8a).
