This 'collective portrait' of Stieglitz situates him in the context of the Modernist currents of the first half of the twentieth century, whose practitioners he championed. A fascinating read, it includes contributions by William Carlos Williams, Gertrude Stein, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Paul Strand, among others.
Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket which shows typical signs of age; some edge wear and chipping; tanning to end-papers and pages.
