THIS LOT CONSISTS OF 3 BOOKS ILLUSTRATED WITH PHOTOGRAPHS BY MARGARET BOURKE-WHITE: You Have Seen Their Faces, 1937 (shown), Dogs are Like Us, 1941, and Portrait of Myself, 1963.

You Have Seen Their Faces. Text by Erskine Caldwell. Photographs by Margaret Bourke-White. Modern Age Books, Inc., New York, 1937. Gold Seal Edition. Large quarto. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. 54 pp. text with sections of captioned halftone photographs interspersed. An engrossing depression-era book by the husband-wife team, with images taken in numerous rural areas throughout Tennessee, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and South Carolina. Includes both iconic and little-known Bourke-White photographs. A Fine copy with typical signs of age: some wear to spine and edges and foxing to inside of wrappers.

Portrait of Myself. Text and photographs by Margaret Bourke-White. Simon and Schuster, New York, 1963. 383 pp. First printing. Thick quarto. Hardbound in library protected dust jacket. Over 70 black-and-white reproductions. Bourke-White's autobiography documents her rise to fame as one of the great social documentarians of her time as well as her battle, late in life, with Parkinson's disease. A Fine copy in a Near Fine jacket with some soiling and foxing to top edges; jacket is edge worn with some chipping, a one inch one-inch piece missing from its top edges and an inch-and-a-half tear along fore-edge.

Dogs are Like Us by John Vassos. Photographs by Beth Dickinson with several by Bourke-White. E.P. Dutton & Co., New York, 1941. 108 pp. First edition. Warmly inscribed by Vassos on front free-endpaper. Quarto. Hardbound in library protected dust jacket. Numerous gravure reproductions. Vassos designed Bourke-Whites studio in the Chrysler Building; she photographed his dog for this lighthearted look at the world of canines while visiting him at his Connecticut home.
