Photographs and text by Larry Snider. Essay by Sylvia Wolf. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Meridian Printing Rhode Island to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Larry Snider's "A World Away". Evocative black-and-white photographs of peoples and places very faraway: The roads not taken of China, Tibet, Bhutan, and Ladakh. "Snider's interest in the people he encountered during his travels was equalled only by his love of photography itself and by his command of light, composition, and design" (Sylvia Wolf). These luminous images speak eloquently for themselves. An absolute "must-have" title for Larry Snider collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 45 plates. One of the most remarkable American traveller/photographers of our time. A flawless copy. ISBN 0970938802. Bookseller Inventory # 19339
