THIS LOT CONSISTS OF 2 BOOKS BY ANDRÉ KERTÉSZ: Paris Vu Par André Kertész, 1934 (shown) and Of New York..., 1976

Paris Vu Par André Kertész. Texte de Pierre Mac-Orlan. Éditions d'histoire et d'art. Librairie Plon, Paris, 1934. Unpaged. Quarto. Stiff illustrated wrappers. Numerous gravure illustrations.
A pivotal book. According to Michel Frizot, "[it] marked the recognition in Europe of the documentarist as author." Kertész's style became the dominant influence on a distintctly French approach to documentary photo work: "private and conversational--a style of reverie". It can be seen in the intimisme of Brassai, Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson, and many others--reference, Michel Frizot, The New History of Photography, pp. 520-522
A fragile book in Near Fine condition; back strip chipping and split (visible in illustration), but binding is still tight; wrappers show typical yellowing and edge wear; the gorgeous gravure plates are all intact.

Of New York.... Photographs by André Kertész. Edited by Nicolas Ducrot. Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1976. 192 pp. First edition. Quarto. Clothbound in illustrated dust jacket. 184 gravure illustrations.
"This is New York--gently, profoundly revealed. This is quintessential Kertész"--from the jacket copy
Fine in a Fine price-clipped dust jacket; some yellowing; a bit of soiling and edgewear.
