You Have Seen Their Faces. Text by Erskine Caldwell. Photographs by Margaret Bourke-White. Modern Age Books, Inc., New York, 1937. Gold Seal Edition. 54 pp. text + captioned photos. Large quarto. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers with matching dust jacket. Half-tone reproductions.

An absolutely engrossing depression-era book with images taken in numerous rural areas throughout Tennessee, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and South Carolina. A 'primary source' for FSA documentary work, here seen in a uniquely contemporary context, this is a fascinating document of the sharecropping rural south at the tail-end of the Depression. As Parr and Badger explain in The Photobook,A History, Vol. I, You Have Seen Their Faceswas the both the most financially successful documentary photobook of the Depression era and the most controversial. "This is a partisan book, and makes no attempt to be anything else, with both text and imagery at least a notch higher on the emotional scale than An American Exodus by Dorothea Lange and Paul Taylor.

Near Fine in Very Good- dust jacket; moderate edge wear; small area of residue lower edge of front wrapper; jacket has minor edge tears and chipping with no major loss; small area of white reside on front; moderate foxing.
