BERTOZZINI, Giancarlo [photographer]. Yemen del Nord. Venti fotografie inedite di Giancarlo Bertozzini presentate da Mario Giacomelli. Pesaro, [privately published for the photographer], 1984.
Square folio portfolio in the original green cloth box (44 x 41 cm), spine lettered in gilt, the photographer's initials in gilt on front cover; ff.  of cream card, including self-wrappers, 20 original colour photos mounted on black cards; only minor spotting or scuffing to cloth box, internally near fine.
First edition, number 4 of a print run limited to 60. Facilitated by the artist, printer and book designer Piergiorgio Spallaci, this extremely rare photo book with colour photographs by the Italian post-war photographer Bertozzini, who used a Rolleiflex 6 x 6 (mis-spelled Rolleflex in the text), and a Leica R3 with Kodacolor II 100 as a film, is the result of his journey to Northern Yemen, undertaken in order to capture the ancient civilization, architecture and people. The text is by the photographer colleague Mario Giacomelli, reknowned for his iconic 1957 photo Scanno Boy.
No copy traced in any library. In 2013 these 20 photos featured in an exhibition near Pesaro; see under candelara.com/mostra (bertozzini) .
