Description: New York & Cambridge, MA, The Museum of Modern Art & The MIT Press., 1976, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-87070-317-X) Boards with Pastedown, Square 8vo, 112pp, 48 color and 1 b&w illustration. Designed by Carl Laanes. With a biography. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. This innovatively designed catalogue was published in conjunction with the 1976 exhibition of William Eggleston's haunting photos of everyday life in the American South held at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Curated by John Szarkowski, it was the first one-man show extended by MoMA solely to a color photographer - confirming Eggleston's well-deserved place in the pantheon of post-war photographic artists, and passing the torch on to the medium's new generation of practitioners. It is a supremely beautiful document, and a piece of twentieth century photo history as well. A bright, fresh, most handsome example of the first edition of this wonderful tome (cited on page 265 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 308-309 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 29 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", page 18 of "From Fair to Fine 3" and pages 234-235 of "The Book of 101 Books") in the gilt embossed, pebble-grained boards with the pastedown of the green tricycle on the front cover.
