COLE, ERNEST. House of Bondage, New York: Ridge Press, 1967. Quarto, first edition, pp. 192, tan cloth boards with gilt-stamped lettering on spine and upper panel, 180 gravures. The photographer, working in the tightly segregated nation that was South Africa, left his country to get these photos published. Parr & Badger, V.2, pp. 106-07: "The furore it [the book] caused made him a perhaps reluctant hero for a generation of aspiring black photographers; despite the success of the book, he never worked again in his homeland, and died penniless and in exile in the United States in 1990."
