np (132pp), 54 color illustrations. Designed by Astrid Lewis. "On June 8, 1968, Robert Kennedy's coffin was put on a train twenty cars long in New York and taken slowly to Washington, D.C. for burial in the Arlington Memorial Cemetery. Paul Fusco, then a staff photographer for Look, was on that train, and the pictures he took of people who lined the tracks along the way fill this moving book. These emotional photographs, many never-before-seen, remember the urgency and tragedy of Bobby Kennedy's assassination and the moving farewell from hundreds of thousands of people who stood patiently in the searing heat along roadsides down the east coast to watch his funeral train pass slowly by just as Abraham Lincoln's had one hundred and three years before. Essays by Norman Mailer (reporting in 1968 from the funeral) as well as a retelling of the story of the passage of the funeral train by Newsweek editor and RFK biographer Evan Thomas join the tribute given by Robert Kennedy's brother Senator Edward M. Kennedy, to evoke how this man and his vision of America touched people with idealism and humanity". A brand new, most handsome example of the 2000 first Umbrage Editions hardbound printing of this supremely moving volume (whose 1999 first Magnum Photos edition is cited on pages 46-47 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", and this edition on page 37 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", and page 19 of "From Fair to Fine 3") additionally BOLDLY SIGNED by Paul Fusco in silver marker on the title page.
