Les Américains. Textes réunis et présentés par Alain Bosquet.
Paris: Robert Delpire, 1958 - Oblong quarto. Original laminated illustrated boards by Saul Steinberg, titles to front cover in red and black, titles to spine in black on a blue ground. Spine very lightly tanned and faintly creased but an excellent copy of a vulnerable book. Illustrated throughout by Frank. First edition, first printing. Frank's notorious early masterpiece was commissioned and first published as part of Delpire's ambitious "Encyclopedie essentielle" Others in the series included Les Allemandes and Les Italiennes. But it was Frank's groundbreaking adaptation of his stylistic forebears such as Walker Evans which has made this publication one of the key photographer's books of the century. The US edition was to carry an introduction by Jack Kerouac which was met in America with critical outrage. With contributions from Simone de Beauvoir, John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, and others. Parr & Badger.
