Minimata. Words and photographs by W. Eugene Smith and Aileen M. Smith. Alskog-Sensorium/Holt, Rinehart, Winston, New York, 1975. 192 pp. First edition. Large quarto. Hardbound in library protected dust jacket. Numerous black-and-white reproductions.

One of the most powerful pieces of photjournalism ever produced, and perhaps the best work of W. Eugene Smith, Minimata documents the Japanese struggle against the ravages of pollution. Defining a classic photojournalist trope, it opens with the source of pollution and procedes to expose its very human effects, the struggle and protests, the joy of victory and the legacy of careless destruction. It was within this essay that Smith's haunting photographs of Tomoko first appeared.

The protected dust jacket has several edge tears of less than one inch; book is in Fine condition with some foxing to front fly-leaf and very light corner bumps.
