NY: The Viking Press, 1941. Evans, Walker. First edition. Small 4to., 152 pp., 147 photos in gravure. Aside from slight darkening to the pastedowns at the gutter, due to the glue used in binding, this is a fine copy. The dust jacket, from a photograph by Walker Evans, is lightly rubbed at the front foredge fold and lacking a tiny spot on the rear panel near the spine. In all, an exceptional copy. Item #52153
The photographs, selected by Edwin Rosskam, are by the FSA photographers, Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Russell Lee, Jack Delano, Dorothea Lange, et al. They show both urban and rural life in the North and South. The striking dustjacket is illustrated with the Walker Evans photograph "Flood Refugees, Alabama."
