Item Description: Grabhorn Press, San Francisco, 1930. Folio. Folio. (17 x 12 1/2 inches). [6] preliminary pages followed by [14]pp. of text. 12 original mounted photographs, each with a corresponding caption leaf. Publisher's half tan morocco over orange/brown cloth, spine with raised bands in six compartments, marbled endpapers (very minor wear). Housed in a modern black full morocco box. Provenance: Edith and Bernhard Dohrmann (bookplate); Book Club of California (bookplate) From an edition of 108 copies signed by author and photographer, containing magnificent photographs by Ansel Adams. Possibly the most famous of modern photographic works on the West, Taos Pueblo was a collaboration between the young photographer, Ansel Adams, and one of the most evocative writers on the Southwest, Mary Austin. An elegant design by the Grabhorn Press provides a counterpoint to Adams' photographs of the adobe Pueblo. The book distilled the romance and naturalism that many Americans found in the Indian pueblos of New Mexico, and defined the style that was to make Adams the most popular of photographers of the American West. "It was at Taos and Santa Fe that Ansel Adams first saw the Southwest. The time was the spring of 1927. His visit resulted in a Grabhorn Press book now of legendary rarity. It includes Ansel Adams' photographs and Mary Austin's essay on Taos Pueblo. Genius has never been more happily wed. Nowhere else did she write prose of such precise and poetical authority . Their Taos Pueblo is a true and beautiful book by two consummate artists" ( Ansel Adams: Photographs of the Southwest, 1970, p. xxv). Produced in a small edition, (this is copy 44 of 108 total), the book is difficult to obtain today. One of the greatest books produced by the Grabhorn Press and featuring beautiful photographs by Ansel Adams, it is a landmark of American photographic depiction of the Southwest.

Photographed by Ansel Easton Adams and Described by Mary Austin. Folio (17¾x12¾). Text printed by Lawton and Alfred Kennedy. 12 full-page fine-screen duotone photographic plates.

When Taos Pueblo, Adams' first book, was published in 1930, he was only 28 years old. He had recently put aside an emerging career as a concert pianist to pursue photography full time.

This is a true facsimile with the book's title and colophon printed in orange and black; the initial, title numbers, and thirteen marginal designs printed in orange. The Indian design on title page was by Valenti Angelo, repeated as a headpiece and in the margins. This limited, signed edition is a faithful reproduction of the very rare original edition, now reaching a value beyond $60,000. [See: Grabhorn Bibliography: 137]. Bookseller Inventory # 7440

Taos Pueblo's most prominent architectural feature is the multi-storied residential complex built approximately 1000 years ago of straw, earth and water (adobe).

Illustrated with 12 reproductions of photographs in duo tone of the inhabitants and the architecture of Taos Pueblo. The photos were taken in 1930 and it's immediate success laid the foundation for Adams to become one of the most well known and finest photographers of the 20th century.
