Paris De Nuit
1932. BRASSAÏ. Paris de Nuit. With text by Paul Morand. Illustrated with 62 photographs by Brassaï and photographic endleaves pinted in gravure. 8vo., bound in original wrappers picturing a Brassaï photograph, title printed in red, spiral bound. Paris: Édition Arts et Métiers Graphiques, n.d. [December, 1932]. |~||~||~||~||~| One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century photographic literature, often reprinted. Paris de Nuit perfectly captures the feeling of Paris during the era of the Depression with darkened gardens, deserted squares, ladies of the evening, and smoke-filled bars and cafés. "The printing represents arguably the most luscious gravure ever seen" (Parr and Badger). This evocative photo-book is now very difficult to find in collectible condition. An immaculate copy of a book almost impossible to find thus. Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 134. Roth, The Book of 101 Books 76.
