June 2023, EDISON ''AMERICA'' No 5, June 1947 (CEMJazz Collections)

The artistic and literary review “AMERICA Cahiers France-Amérique-Latinité”, directed by Pierre Seghers and edited by the intercontinentale du livre, was founded in 1945 and only five issues were printed. The last one, dated from June 1947 and […] presented by AMERICA and the Hot-Club de France […], was entitled “Jazz 1947”.

Robert Goffin and Charles Delaunay were the chief editors of this issue and…they were in good company as we can see above… Besides, not all the contributors are mentioned since we find, for example, Hergé, whose name appears throughout the pages!

AMERICA June 1947

Jazz 47 focuses on the history and aesthetics of Jazz, a fascinating dossier to read, of course, “with the eyes of the era”…

4000 ième item

The silver print on glossy paper (format 20.6cm X 25.5cm), unsigned, has lived a little. The photo must have been framed in its time, the edges are damaged or even slightly torn, they are holes in the corners and traces of adhesive tape and glue; but that's not what we're looking at in this photo…
