About this Item

Mexico City, Editorial México Nuevo, 1937. (10 7/8 x 8 1/4 in., 27.5 x 20.7 cm). 242pp. First edition. Original printed wrappers (very good overall with light soiling, areas of staining, light handling creases, the top edge of the front cover and first 6 leaves injured with a 7mm closed tear and decreasing further along but without the tear, front joint starting from heel (separated 45mm), abrasion to rear cover affecting the publisher's imprint, internally very good indeed with moderate edge toning as expected). This copy, of the majority, printed onto lighter weight paper and without an illustrated cover. Reference: Parr / Badger, "The Photobook", Vol. I, pp. 110-111: "During the 1930s in Mexico, Augustín Jiménez was considered to be as important a photographer as Manuel Alvárez Bravo. He was not only wide-ranging in both style and practice--making industrial and advertising as well as editorial New Vision photographs - but he was also photography instructor at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas, and a noted cinematographer." - "It was Jiménez who makes this illustrated version of Hernán's novel Chimeneas an important modernist photobook, despite the presence of works by two other photographers. Augustín Victor Casasola's archive photographs of the revolution are mixed with Enrique Gutmann's social documentary studies before Jiménez raises the stakes with a display of modernist strategies ranging from New Vision formalism to photomontage." Additional reference: Fernández, Horacio, "Fotografia Publica: Photography in Print 1919-1939", pp. 134-135. Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 2011379
