Lichtbilder. Photographs by Eugene Atget (with frontispiece portrait by Berenice Abbott). Introduction by Camille Recht. Verlag Henri Jonquières, Paris and Leipzig, 1930. 34 pp. text + plates. Large quarto. No. 988 in an edition of 1000 copies. Hardbound. 96 full-page collotypes from the original Atget negatives.

Berenice Abbott purchased the contents of Atget’s studio in Paris--1,300 glass negatives and 7,000 prints assembled in albums--following his death in 1927. She brought the collection to New York with the backing of Julian Levy. Together, they introduced Atget’s work to the American public in a series of exhibitions and publications. The German edition of this monograph was published simultaneously in English and French editions on the occasion of the first one-man exhibition organized by Levy and Abbott at the Weyhe Gallery in New York. A rare copy of an important book! 350 works from Julian Levy's collection of Atget material were acquired in 2001 by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Many of them are currently on view in a show titled Looking at Atget that runs through November 27.

Very Good; binding tight and square; vertical splitting to cloth along front joint; minor abrasion to crown of spine and less so to foot; some soiling to boards; typical tanning to page edges; overall a presentable copy.
