Photographs of Mexico. Anton Bruehl. Delphic Studios, New York, 1933. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000 COPIES. Folio (16 in./41 cm.) First edition*. SIGNED on colophon page. Clothbound with quarter leather. No jacket as issued. Preliminaries + Preface + 25 full-page green-toned collotype plates.
*Edition Note: This first edition should not be confused with the trade edition published twelve years later by U.S. Camera.



A strong body of work in an award-winning deluxe presentation. The twenty-five large, warm collotype plates of the people and scenery of Mexico are masterfully seen,and invite comparison with Paul Strand's photographs of Mexico that were made at the same time. Parr/Badger write that "like Strand, Bruehl seems to have been aiming for a timeless vision of humanity," although Bruehl intentionally excluded religious imagery. Instead Bruehl focusses his lens on people, locales, and objects of Mexican peasant life, creating images that are "an exemplary combination of modernist angles with pictorialist values." Parr & Badger, The Photobook, A History, Vol. I, p. 81.

Fine with a trace of wear to leather spine.
