First edition, first printing. The first publication of the complete set of a series of photographs taken during the summer of 1959 by Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson. The photographs follow ‘The Jokers’, one of the many youth gangs in Brooklyn at a time when there were ‘an estimated thousand gang members in New York City’. The photographs are accompanied by a short text by the photographer and a longer interview with one of the former gang members.

Quarto. Original black cloth, titles in yellow on spine and front cover, green endpapers. With photographic dust jacket. Minor stain to fore edge. An excellent copy in a lightly rubbed jacket with a small closed tear to head of spine, slight wear to tail, and a small nick to top of front fold.
