In his own words, "Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture.

(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.

Jacket, bright, complete unclipped, handling/soiling wear, a couple of darker spots & a small thin faint red mark on back cover, some edge wear with a 1 1/2" piece out at spine bottom (not very noticible when on book as the jacket repeats the book illustration.) else about VG+, again better than 95% we've seen listed. This is a large & fragile book notoriously hard to find without spine flaws or jacket problems, this copy is very good indeed. The caption booklet has a darkened spine & some small tape here and there, the spine has pin holes as though it was bound in to something at one time, it's just a few pages which basically repeats the captions inside the book. 'The Decisive Moment' is quite simply one of the greatest of all photobooks the size and deep gravure reproduction makes these superb photos just stunning and one has to see a copy to appreciate the glory of this book. One of the great classics. The standard shipping rates will need to be adjusted on this title due to size, weight and price. Bookseller Inventory # 0006221

Book 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
