Revelaciones. The Art of Manuel Alvarez Bravo. Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, 1990. Text by Nissan N. Perez. Introduction by Arthur Ollman. Quarto. Stiff grey wrappers with mounted halftone photograph. 134 pp. Edition of 3500 copies. AUTOGRAPHED IN INK BY BRAVO ON THE HALF-TITLE PAGE.

A handsome book published to salute the lifetime achievement of Manual Alvarez Bravo and to coincide with the traveling exhibition that originated at the San Diego photographic museum. In his introduction (in English and Spanish), Ollman writes: "There are many Manuel Alvarez Bravos. That is his power. There is the pre-Columbian Alvarez Bravo, a worshiper of bulls and sacrificer of virgins....There is another Alvarez Bravo who is purely Mexican in the revolutionary spirit....There is also an educated, urbane, Europeanized Alvarez Bravo....." Bravo's images are always lucid, lyrical, and perfectly seen, whether in intense sunlight or in dark shadows. The forty-four laser-scanned duotone plates include both classic and rarely seen images.

A near fine copy, with bookplate of former owner at lower corner of front endpaper, one short surface scuff on lower front hinge, light surface marks on cover illustration, and slight rubbing to corner tips of cover. There is a pale ink offset from Bravo's signature on facing preliminary page, as the book was closed before the ink was completely dry. Two consecutive sentences in one column of text underlined in ink. In clear glassine.
