Steichen the Photographer. Text by Carl Sandburg. Harcourt, Brace, New York, 1929. 70 pp. + plates. Small folio. No. 785 in a hand-numbered limited edition limited edition of 925 copies signed by both Steichen and Sandburg. Hardbound. No jacket as issued. 48 fine screen reproductions of photographs by Steichen, each with a captioned inter-leaf.

This first major monograph devoted to the work of Edward Steichen features extensive text written by his brother-in-law, the poet Carl Sandburg. In Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century, Vince Aletti says, it is "a sumptuous book which includes a broad and cleverly sequenced array of Steichen’s work handsomely printed in warm sepia tones." "Each image is preceded by a separate title page, suggesting a portfolio of fine-art reproductions rather than the usual hectic treatment of photographs in the mass media; here we are made to understand every picture that deserves serious contemplation." One of the essential photobooks of the twentieth century cannon!



Fine-; some wear to crown and base of spine; boards just a bit scuffed and worn.
