(EVANS, WALKER). EVANS, WALKER. INTRODUCTION BY JAMES AGEE - MANY ARE CALLED: PHOTOGRAPHS BY WALKER EVANS

Title: MANY ARE CALLED: PHOTOGRAPHS BY WALKER EVANS
Description: Boston & Cambridge, MA, Houghton Mifflin Company & The Riverside Press., 1966, First Edition. (ISBN: LC 66-27491) Boards in Pictorial Jacket, Small 4to, xii + 178pp, 89 b&w illustrations. Published in 1966, this hardbound monograph collected in book form for the first time Walker Evans' poignant black and white portraits of New York City subway riders taken during the thirties and forties. An otherwise internally bright, most handsome example of the uncommon Houghton Mifflin Company and Riverside Press first hardcover edition (cited on page 253 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 218-219 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 31 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", and pages 104-109 of Horacio Fernandez' "New York in Photobooks") showing some minor staining and the name of a previous owner in ink on the front pastedown. The embossed white lettering on the front board and spine is still strong and crisp, while the black covers show a few trivial traces of water droplets in raking light along with a minor scratch on the rear board. Its fragile dust jacket is present, though noticeably creased, chipped, and torn - with some paper loss. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.. Very Good/Good.
