American Prospects. Photographs by Joel Sternfeld. Introduction by Andy Grundberg. Afterword by Anne W. Tucker. Times Books/Museum of Fine Arts Houston, 1987. Unpaged. First Edition. Clothbound with photo-illustrated dust jacket in protective plastic. Oblong quarto. 55 color reproductions.

A first edition of this recently re-issued masterpiece. Andy Grundberg begins his short but insightful essay by quoting the intensely perceptive observations--both visually and intellectually--of Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America. The young Frenchman had seen from a distance several white marble homes, but with a closer look, come to learn that they were made of whitewashed brick and wood. The American "penchant for putting up fronts," as Grundberg describes it, was already present in 1831. With the mind of an inquisitive sociologist, Sternfeld began crisscrossing this great democratic experiment in the late 1970s, searching out the innumerable alterations man has imposed upon the landscape.

NOTE: The re-issue is available as photo-eye catalogue PK888
