About this Item

Hardcover in dust jacket. 4vo. First American edition. Blue boards with white lettering. Top two inches of cloth covering the spine is missing. Binding is tight, pages are crisp and clean. No bumping to corners, no foxing, no soiling, no tears to pages. Dust jacket looks Fine from the front and back but half of the spine paper is missing and the front and back jacket have a long tear, so it is the Mylar jacket that is holding the jacket in place. Despite these significant flaws, this copy is a handsome specimen. The Becher's first book of early photographs (1960s) of industrial structures, lime kilns, cooling towers, blast furnaces, winding towers, water towers, gas holders and silos is considered by many their most important book. A landmark in the history of photography, the book combines documentary and architectural photography, and creates an aesthetic impact that has had an enormous influence not only on the next generation of German and Europeans photographers, but also on contemporary Japanese and American photography. (Andrew Roth: The Open Book; Martin Parr/Gerry Badger: The Photobook, Volume II.) Minimal text is in English, French, and German. Small bookstore sticker on rear flap, from the legendary Jaap Rietman art bookstore in New York. Unpaginated. Detailed scans available on request. Bookseller Inventory # 71251
