Ed Ruscha: Nine Swimming Pools (and a Broken Glass). Ed Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1968. 64 pp. Duodecimo (7 1/8 x 5 1/2 in.). Second edition limited to 2,000 copies (this edition, 1976; originally published in 1968 in an edition of 2,400 copies.) Stiff printed wrappers. 10 four-color reproductions.

At a time when fine art photography was moving toward a distinctly subjective vision in documentary photography--Arbus, Friedlander, Winogrand--Ruscha was moving in the opposite direction, making pictures that were cool, distant, and entirely flat emotionally, lacking even a hint of personal style. Following Some Los Angeles Apartments (1965), Every building on Sunset Strip (1966), and Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles, Nine Swimming Pools (and a Broken Glass) continues with his depictions of iconic L.A. 'architectural memes' in a manner that suggests emptiness and desolation.--reference: Sylvia Wolf, Ed Ruscha and Photography

Near Fine-; lacking glassine wrapper; wrappers a bit scuffed; tiny tears and adjacent to several page edges (touching one image by only about 1 mm.)
