"What [Pratt] worked for in the print was the utmost of what he had seen with his eyes. His photographs...have the purity of the child's vision that has not yet been corrupted or made unconfident by exposure to what is false and sterile...What distinguishes his work, apart from its beauty, is the extraordinary degree to which it is both sensitive and precise." - Lisette Model, from the introduction.
Fine with fine dust jacket; front board somewhat splayed and sun-faded; dust jacket has small half-inch tear near spine and some curling; pages are clean and bright.
