Greek Portfolio. Constantine Manos. The Viking Press, New York, 1972. First edition. Square quarto. Cloth in photo-illustrated dustjacket. 126 pp. SIGNED IN INK ON TITLE-PAGE.
Constantine Manos, a Magnum photographer of Greek heritage, photographed the Greek countryside and islands in the 1960's much in the way that Paul Strand photographed in the Hebrides, France, Egypt, and other locales --- with an eye toward long-standing local traditions and an intimate sense of the people. The one hundred and twelve beautifully printed plates show the simple life being lived by several generations.
A fine copy; soft handling marks at the lower edge of front endpaper. A few minor closed tears and light handling marks at edges of jacket. In clear paper-backed glassine.
