[Germany], [ca. early 1920s]. Oblong album measuring 9î x 6.5î approx. String-bound in red glossy-coated cloth. 42 gelatin silver photographs measuring 3.5î x 2.25î approx. glue mounted rectos only to 25 leaves, most interleaved with tissue. Boards lightly rubbed at edges with top corner of front board bumped. Some creasing and edge-wear to tissue guards. One photo perished, else apparently complete. Photographs generally fine. Sound and clean overall. Near fine. (Item ID: 16693)

Elegant and carefully-assembled photo album of bathers in and around an unidentified lakeside German resort, likely in the years following WWI. The album combines well-composed candid and posed shots of bathers with striking portraits that together reveal a talented photographer, a kind of Jazz Age Jock Sturges. A work of uncommon unity and execution, an accomplished and tender vernacular photobook of German bathing culture.
