About this title

Synopsis:

Hardcover. Gray cloth-covered boards with title stamped in gray on cover and spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs by Herbert List. Introduction by Stephen Spender. Edited by Jack Woody and Max Scheler. Includes a list of plates, a chronology and a selected bibliography. Designed by Jack Woody. Unpaginated (112 pp.), with 72 sheet-fed gravure plates beautifully printed in Japan. 11-1/4 x 14-1/4 inches. This first edition was limited to 5000 hardbound copies. CONDITION: Fine in Fine dust jacket. From the introduction by Stephen Spender: "The young men selected by [List] are beautiful by the standards of Greek and Roman sculpture and architecture, and by the Renaissance ones of Michelangelo's sculpture and of his figures of youths..." From the publisher: "During 1929, Herbert List began to photograph the young men he knew and traveled with throughout Greece, Italy, and Germany. He captured the innocence of their beauty and physical prowess before Hitler's politics commandeered those qualities for his own bleak purposes. The relationship, in List's mind, of these young men to Greek statues is emphasized by the occasional juxtaposition of nude or semi-nude figures with fragments of Greek statues."
