In his own words, "Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera." (Washington Post, 1957).At the rear of the folio is the following information on the production of the volume: "This book, with a cover designed and executed especially for it by Henri Matisse, is a selection of 126 photographs from the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. The French Edition by Verve (Images a la Sauvette) and the American Edition by Simon and Schuster (The Decisive Moment), were conceived and composed by Teriade with the collaboration of Marguerite Lang. The engravings and printing is the work of the master printers Draeger Freres of Paris. It was completed the 22nd of July, 1952."Folio, 126 photographs, text, Index.

Item Description: New York: Simon and Schuster (1952), 1952. First U.S. Edition. Folio. Caption booklet laid in. Boards and dust jacket designed by Matisse. 126 images, lusciously printed, of Cartier-Bresson's early work. Only few photobooks in history can match the influence of The Decisive Moment. Since its publication in 1952, it has remained one of the pillars of photography. (Parr / Badger, v1, 208-209; Roth 134-135; Open Book 154-155). A little bumped at the corners and spine ends (with the hint of a concurrent bump barely visible at the top edge of the text block), edge dent to the top of the front board, still a clean, near fine copy in a close to near fine jacket with a few small edge tears and tiny chips. Very pleasing example of a book that is hard to find in collectible condition. Bookseller Inventory # 17649
