William Eggleston's Guide. Photographs by William Eggleston. Essay by John Szarkowski. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1976. First Edition. Small square quarto, black leatherette, lettered in gilt, no dustjacket as issued. 110pp. 48 color plates; color plate tipped onto the faux leather cover.

The exhibition of William Eggleston's color work in 1976 was the first one-person show given to a color photographer at the Museum of Modern Art. Prior to that ground-breaking exhibition, color photographs could be seen only in group shows. Eggleston's show, printed in the dye transfer process, was controversial. The general public wondered what was so special about these photographs that were akin to color snapshots. Critics hotly debated the merits of the show. But time has proven Szarkowski right in his decision to give Eggleston this important spot in art photography history.

Very Fine. An unusually fresh copy with only a miniscule chip on the lower edge of the cover tipped-image.
