"What you call a ghetto, I call my home. This was said to me when I first came to Harlem, and during the two years that I photographed the people of East 100th Street, it stayed with me". Bruce Davidson's first book, "East 100th Street" which surveys the harrowing state of life in Harlem in the late sixties is one of the classic volumes of Post-War American photography. An internally most handsome example of the 1970 Harvard University Press first hardbound printing (cited on page 18 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 260-261 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 26 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", and pages 196-97 of "The Book of 101 Books") additionally SIGNED "Bruce Davidson" in black ink on the half title page showing a bit of typical light soiling and age-toning to the extremities of the cloth and textblock in a price clipped publisher's printed acetate jacket that has a three inch closed tear at the top of the spine along with some chipping at the spine ends and upper foredge corner of the front cover. Despite these condition issues, it is one of the sharper copies of this exceedingly fragile title we have ever seen.
