Item Description: Grabhorn Press, San Francisco, 1930. Folio. (17 x 12 1/2 inches). [6] preliminary pages followed by [14]pp. of text. 12 original photographs, printed on Dessonville paper by Ansel Adams, various sizes to 9 x 6 1/2 inches, each with a corresponding caption leaf. Publisher's half tan morocco over orange cloth, spine with raised bands in six compartments, marbled endpapers (light spotting to the covers, light wear). Housed in a morocco box. From an edition of 108 copies containing magnificent photographs by Ansel Adams, signed by Mary Austin 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 copy number 92 of 108), 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.

Item Description: 1977. First Edition. ADAMS, Ansel and AUSTIN, Mary. Taos Pueblo. Facsimile edition. Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1977. Tall folio, original half tan calf, orange cloth boards, marbled endpapers, original matching slipcase. $3100.Signed limited edition, number 257 of 950 copies signed by Adams of this work exploring the fluid relationship between the architecture of Pueblo buildings and the Southwestern landscape. A fine facsimile of the very rare original 1930 edition, with 12 finely screened duotones by Ansel Adams and woodcut motifs by Valenti Angelo.“When Taos Pueblo, Adams’ first book, was published in 1930, he was 28… [and] had only recently put aside a nascent career as a concert pianist to pursue photography full time… The twelve photos in Taos Pueblo… include several formal portraits reminiscent of Edward Curtis and neatly circumscribed, almost intimate landscapes… The best of them are architectural studies that draw upon what Austin calls, ‘the deep-rooted, grown-from-the-soil look of Pueblo buildings’ to explore a proto-modernist softened geometry that reconciles nature and the built environment. The book’s solid success at the height of the Depression (all 108 copies sold over two years at $75 a piece) encouraged Adams to continue in his course as a photographer of the American landscape” (Roth, 58). This limited edition is a faithful reproduction of that rare landmark. See Open Book, 88-89. Discrete ownership stamp.Fine condition, signed. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 59106
