Paris: Delpire Éditeur, 1975. Prepublication copy. Oblong quarto, sewn and glued. SIGNED by Koudelka and inscribed ‘GYPSIES / Josef Koudelka / 20 Sept 1975 / [star]’ in yellow crayon on front free endpaper. Although not noted, this copy was given to the photographer and agent John Hillelson, Magnum’s London agent, before the book was published, or even bound. Although printing was complete at the end of August, publication of Gitans/Gypsies was delayed until 24 November; the French edition was published simultaneously in an English version, and Koudelka has provided an English ‘title-page’ in bold yellow crayon. Very good in printed wrappers.
