The Boy: A Photographic Essay. Edited George St. Martin & Ronald Nelson. Photographs by numerous artists. Designed by Philip Sutherland. Book Horizons, New York, 1964. 232 pp. Tall quarto. First edition, first printing (not to be confused with numerous later printings). Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Black-and-white reproductions printed in sheet-fed gravure; by Achrovure; four-color offset litho by Case-Hoyt Corp.



Idealized images from an imaginary childhood full of sun and nature. Like The Family of Man, the photos reproduced were culled from around the world. With obvious homoerotic overtones derived from classical compositions that anticipate Bruce Weber, they show boys playing war games in Lord of the Flies costume; boys diving into turquoise water; boys on the farm playing with the dog, and so on.

About Fine with a personal library stamp on half-title page; Near Fine+ dust jacket with wear to upper edge; tiny chip upper corner; 1 in./2.5 cm tear with some adjacent creasing at crown of spine.
