LEVITT, Helen and James AGEE
A Way of Seeing: Photographs of New York
New York: Viking, 1965. Oblong 8vo. 78 pages, including 50 black-and-white images. Original cloth, lettered in white; pictorial dust jacket. FIRST EDITION. "Blending the static beauty that [Walker] Evans extracted from day-to-day events with Cartier-Bresson's sense of movement, Levitt created a genuine portrait of street life. She isolates the brightest and most spontaneous moments with a vision that includes a clear dose of emotion and that betrays an admiration, even a perplexity, in the face of neighborhood life" (Horatio Fernández, 'New York in Photobooks', Barcelona, 2016, p.92). Parr, The Photobook: A History I, p. 252 The Open Book, p. 214. The finest copy we have ever seen. A superb copy, save one trivial crease at the foot of the rear panel, a flawless copty. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Riverrun Books & Manuscripts [USA]
