APERTURE MAGAZINE. Complete Run, Issue #1 - #227 (Summer 2017)
San Francisco: , 1952. 1st Printing. Original paper covers. Divers paginations. Illustrated from photographs. Divers sizes. The first 14 volumes are housed in two custom grey cloth clamshell cases. The condition of the earlier issues show varying degrees of wear, from Good - VG+, overall a solid VG. The later issues, from the last couple decades tend toward VG+ to Fine. "The magazine was founded in 1952 by a consortium of photographers and proponents of photography: Ansel Adams, Melton Ferris, Dorothea Lange, Ernest Louie, Barbara Morgan, Beaumont Newhall, Nancy Newhall, Dody Warren, and Minor White. It was the first journal since Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Work to explore photography as a fine art. The journal’s mission, as stated in its inaugural issue: Aperture has been originated to communicate with serious photographers and creative people everywhere, whether professional, amateur or student.. Aperture is intended to be a mature journal in which photographers can talk straight to each other, discuss the problems that face photography as profession and art, share their experiences, comment on what goes on, descry the new potentials. We, who have founded this journal, invite others to use Aperture as a common ground for the advancement of photography. Minor White was appointed by the founders to be the editor of the magazine, which was at first published out of San Francisco. The magazine's dimensions were initially modest (9 3/8 by 6 ¼ inches), and in its first two decades the photographs discussed and published in its pages were exclusively black and white (the preferred mode of most art photographers of the era). Many early issues were loosely organized around thematic concepts (such as “The Creative Approach” [vol. 2, no. 2, 1953], “The Controversial ‘Family of Man’” [vol. 3, no. 2, 1955], and “Substance and Spirit of Architectural Photography” [vol. 6, no. 4, 1958]), or were monographic publications (the first of these was vol. 6, no. 1, 1958, on Edward Weston). In 1953 the editorial offices moved to Rochester, New York. (White joined the staff of the George Eastman House, and in 1955 began teaching at the Rochester Institute of Technology) White was assisted with the magazine’s editorial and production tasks by Peter C. Bunnell. From the outset, the magazine was appreciated by its readers as “a much needed forum for serious photographers.” In 1962, vol. 10, no. 4, a monograph on photographer Frederick Sommer, was the first of many issues to be published also as a trade book." [Wiki] Here offered, then, is a complete run of this important & influential magazine, an absolutely essential work documenting the evolution of photography as an artform in the later half of the 20th Century, beginning of the 21st. Please note, this collection of Apertures, in its entire, is of considerable weight [100+ lbs], and the postage charge assessed on purchase will reflect this physicality aspect.

Spine gilt decorated, with maroon title label in second compartment, volume label in 4 compartment. 8 volumes. Frontis in Volume I. 8vo. General wear, with the odd extremity rub. Bookplates. An attractive VG - VG+ set. "The Spectator was a daily publication founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England, lasting from 1711 to 1712. Each 'paper', or 'number', was approximately 2,500 words long, and the original run consisted of 555 numbers, beginning on 1 March 1711. These were collected into seven volumes. The paper was revived without the involvement of Steele in 1714, appearing thrice weekly for six months, and these papers when collected formed the eighth volume. Eustace Budgell, a cousin of Addison's, and the poet John Hughes also contributed to the publication. In Number 10, Mr. Spectator states that The Spectator will aim 'to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality' .. The Spectator sought to provide readers with topics for well-reasoned discussion, and to equip them to carry on conversations and engage in social interactions in a polite manner. In keeping with the values of Enlightenment philosophies of their time, the authors of The Spectator promoted family, marriage, and courtesy." [Wiki] An invaluable resource for researching / studying 18th Century British society.
