Lines of My Hand. Photographs by Robert Frank. Lustrum Press, 1972. Unpaged. First American edition. Tall quarto. Stiff illustrated wrappers. Numerous black-and-white reproductions, contact sheets, and montages.

Originally published in 1972 by Yugensha, Tokyo (also available, HERE, this edition was brought out later the same year by Ralph Gibson's Lustrum Press in this softbound edition. As Parr and Badger explain in The Photobook: A History vol. I, "If Lustrum had done nothing except make this cheap edition of the Japanese book available, it would have been contribution enough to the history of the photobook...In many ways The Lines of My Hand can be regarded as the apotheosis of stream-of-consciousness photography...." They go on to say, "everything [Frank] does is a diary, a confession. Nevertheless, the book follows a broadly chronological path through his photographic career, including early work in Europe, South America and Great Britain through to The Americans and the Bus Project...since he is [the book's] primary subject, the diaristic confessional of the book is the ideal showcase."

Fine, with just a trace of edge wear.
