Un Paese
1955. First Edition . STRAND, Paul and ZAVATTINI, Cesare. Un paese. (Torino): Giulio Einaudi, (1955). Quarto, original gray cloth, original pictorial dust jacket. $1800.First edition of this scarcest of all Strand titles, beautifully illustrated with many in-text and full-page gravure prints.“When Paul Strand moved to France in 1950, he was… in exile from an America that had turned sharply conservative… he began pursuing a notion he’d been harboring for years: the portrait in photographs and words of a small town and its inhabitants… he hoped to demonstrate ‘the common denominator of all humanity’ and ‘create a bridge toward a deeper understanding between countries.’ This project wasn’t fully realized until later, when Strand collaborated with Italian screenwriter Cesare Zavattini on Un Paese, his 1955 book on Zavattini’s home town of Luzzara” (Roth, 136). The neo-realist Zavattini wrote the screenplays for such acclaimed films as The Bicycle Thief and Two Women. Text in Italian. Book fine, a bit of chipping to spine head of near-fine dust jacket.
