London: Open Gate. 1971.

First English edition. 8vo. 246x190mm. 96pp. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket. Slight rubbing to the corners of the boards. The dustjacket has some chipping and two closed tears to the top edge and some creasing and a closed tear to the bottom edge with wear and chipping to the head and foot of spine but overall is in very good condition particularly as it is rare to find this book in hardback with its dustjacket. Protected by mylar wrappers. Signed by McCullin on the title page. "This collection of [McCullin's] best work is a statement of man's inhumanity to man - and is a more poignant and more powerful statement than could be made in a hundred book of words or a hundred films. The stark black and white of McCullin's pictures compel one's total attention and leave room for nothing but reality".
