See Worldwide 174525, a 2016 reprint. This publication is a revised edition of the seven-volume set published in 2002, presented here in a single volume. It contains all of the original images, the main texts, and the main text of the accompanying study edition, as well as a new preface. Publisher's description: With People of the 20th Century, August Sander created a monumental work that is unique in the history of photography and a classic of photographic literature. Sander conceived this large-scale project, which he ultimately never completed, in the 1920s. He was to spend the rest of his life working on it, his objective nothing less than a complete typological portrait of contemporary society. Hundreds of portraits classified according to professional, social or family criteria were to provide a representative picture of the various social groups. He envisaged seven groups labeled "The Farmer", "The Skilled Tradesman", "The Woman", "Classes and Professions", "The Artists", "The City" and -- on the theme of age, illness and death -- "The Last People". We have now condensed our 2002 seven-volume edition of the artist's complete oeuvre into one large volume.
