Cecil Beaton's New York
Philadelphia: J.P. Lippincott Company 1958 - Illustrated with black and white photographs by Beaton. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Beaton on the front free endpaper: "Best wishes / Cecil Beaton [scroll] / ". Publisher's yellow cloth, lettered in black; in the original pictorial dust jacket, lettered in black. Book very good or better, with some toning to the spine and board edges, bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and chipping to the extremities, toning to the spine, loss to the spine tail and bottom edge of the front panel, otherwise bright panels. Overall, a presentable copy, inscribed by Beaton. Cecil Beaton's New York is a collection of British photographer and designer Cecil Beaton's impressions of New York City. In his preface, Beaton cautions that this text is "more incomplete than any other book on New York" and contains "nothing of history, economics, politics or religion." Rather, Cecil Beaton's New York presents Beaton's visual interpretations of the city by interweaving his striking photographs with a narrative description of the artist's inspirations. Overall, Cecil Beaton's New York provides a unique look at both New York City's urban landscape and Beaton's creative process. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
