Hardcover with dustjacket with textbook in Portugues and English. Photographs by Victor Palla and Costa Martins; text and poems by Rodrigues Migueis, Alexadre O'Neill, Armindo Rodrigues, David Mourao-Ferreira, Eugenio de Andrade, Jorge de Sena and Jose Gomes Ferreira. Reprint of the original book published 1959, edition of 2000 copies.

'Lisboa, Cidade Triste e Alegre’ is a simphony about Lisbon of the fifties, showing the city in its different aspects. 
This new edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original one from 1959. 
It also includes a supplement with a new introduction by Gerry Badger and a full transcription into english of the book’s index, where the authors explain in detail the making of each image.
The photos are very modern, grainy, taken in a fast way, choosing spontaneity and instinct to artifact and composition. According to Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, who included this book in "The Photobook: A History, vol.1": 'Lisboa is particularly notable forusing many of the book-making ideas developed by William Klein, and Dutch photographers like Ed van der Elsken 
and Joan van der Keuken, and has a vibrant, cinematic feeling'. 
Long out of print, this newedition follows exactly the first edition, including text and poems by Rodrigues Migueis, Alexadre O’Neill, Armindo Rodrigues, David Mourão-Ferreira, Eugénio de Andrade, Jorge de Sena and José Gomes Ferreira. And a newbooklet with an introduction by Gerry Badger.
