Photograph by Homer Page (detail)


Since 1976, we have specialized in rare, out-of-print, and antiquarian books, ephemera, and original photographs concerned with all aspects of photography from its pre-history to the modern era. Periodically, electronic catalogues are issued; appraisal and collection development services are offered. Please note that new items are added daily.

 I am pleased to announce the publication of  E-LIST 21  a group of 30 diverse and interesting books, prints and ephemera on or about photography. These includea rare portfolio of photographs from the GREAT LAKES EXPOSITION: CLEVELAND, 1936 - 37 with photographs by Margaret Bourke-White; Jessie Tarbox Beals' SONGS OF A WANDERER; an elegant invitation, with an etched view, to attend a  photographic exhibition, circa 1890; Salgado's  WORKERS with a signed 20 x 24 inch silver gelatin print of the cover image, COAL MINING, DHANBAD; the first book to contain original albumen stereographs, TENERIFFE, AN ASTRONOMER'S EXPERIMENT; an inscribed copy, with original prints of Poitevin's work of photolithography and other photomechanical processes; and the Dagron's manual for making microscopically sized photographs,which preceded his Pigeon Post work of 1870. 

This sampling is but a fraction of my inventory; for a larger selection, please visit my website  New additions are uploaded regularly.
