Andre Kertesz. Photographs by Kertesz. Text by Karoly Borbely (in Hungarian, German, English, and French). Szentendre, Hungary, 1987. First edition. A miniature book bound in boards covered with gilt-stamped velvet-like burgundy cloth. 203 pp. + colophon. Copy number 268.
This handsome miniature book was published near Kertesz's birthplace in Hungary. It contains seventy-nine halftone plates with facing captions; most of the images are of his earlier work done in Hungary and Paris. In 1984, at the age of ninety, Kertesz returned to Hungary for a ten day visit, and made a gift of his photographs to found the first museum in Hungary devoted to photography. Difficult to find. (No other miniature photography book comes to mind!)
A very fine copy.
