Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 100 pages. Published in 2000. New And Enlarged Edition of the photographer's classic. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The Hardcover Reissued Edition. Published in a small and limited print run, it was not reissued once all the copies sold and is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Dave Heath and Michael Torosian: Oversize-volume format. Cloth boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Dave Heath. Letter by the reclusive Robert Frank (a great admirer of the photographer's work), which appears in this edition only. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Berlin, Germany using the NovaTone process, an exceptional offset technique that preserves the photographs' brilliant tonal scale, to the highest standards. The reproduction quality of the images must be seen to be believed in its crispness, warmth, and beauty. In white pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in a stunning re-creation, not just a re-production, Dave Heath's "A Dialogue With Solitude". Originally published in 1965, "A Dialogue with Solitude" has long been out-of-print and highly sought-after by collectors. In 1961, Dave Heath assembled the photographs that he had been making throughout the 1950's into a poetic sequence. The original plan for the book, as he envisioned it, would be a large format, as big as LIFE Magazine was at the time. When the book was eventually published, it was considerably reduced in size. Nevertheless, "A Dialogue With Solitude" became an instant classic, quickly went out-of-print, and for the last thirty years, the few copies that occasionally turned up were snapped up by collectors. Using the maquette from 1961 and the set of master prints, the book has been restored to the format of Dave Heath's original design. Among the handful of truly great photographers, Dave Heath has been one of the least prolific, an admirable feat in itself, considering that the medium inherently encourages constant picture-taking, seemingly endless repetition, and non-stop proliferation. In addition to his "Korea" Portfolio, the photographs in this collection, including the most celebrated one, "Vengeful Sister, Chicago, 1956", represent pretty much the photographer's slim but unparalleled output. "Dave Heath has combined the freedom and spontaneity of the small camera approach with a rare formal intensity and precision. His pictures possess stability, simplicity, and tremendous emotional force" (Museum of Modern Art). An absolute "must-have" edition for Dave Heath collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen-marker on the title page by Dave Heath. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Edition Thus/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies of the 1965 First Edition now command between $7000 and $10000. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 82 duotone plates. Dave Heath's "A Dialogue With Solitude" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.

Book Description Lumiere Press, Toronto, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. 1965/2000. First edition thus (originally published in 1965), first printing. Signed in blue marker on the title page by Heath. Hardcover. Gray cloth-covered boards with title stamped in black on spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and text by Dave Heath. Foreword by Hugh Edwards. Letter by Robert Frank. Designed by Dave Heath. Unpaginated (100 pp.), with 81 NovaTone(r) plates (including numerous full-bleed plates) beautifully printed in Germany under the production management of Dieter Kirchner. 12-3/4 x 9-5/8 inches. Out of print. Scarce. New in New dust jacket. A Mint copy. From the publisher: "With the publication of A Dialogue With Solitude, Lumiere Press has reached a unique milestone in our history - our first unlimited-edition publication. This is, however, a book with a remarkable pedigree, a meticulous production history, and, in keeping with the traditions of the press, a distinctive, hand-made variant edition. In 1961, Dave Heath assembled the photographs that he had been making throughout the fifties into a poetic sequence. The original plan for a book, as he envisioned it, would be a large format, akin to LIFE magazine. When the book was eventually published, in 1965, it was reduced in size. Nevertheless, A Dialogue With Solitude was a landmark in photography -- it quickly went out-of-print and for the last thirty years has been highly sought by collectors. The new Lumiere Press edition is the rebirth of a classic. Using the maquette from 1961, and the set of master prints, the book has been restored to the format of Heath's original design. The eighty-two images were printed in Berlin in the Novatone(r) process -- an exceptional offset technique that preserved the photographs' brilliant tonal scale. The binding cloth and endpapers duplicate the original binding. In every way this book is the fulfillment of the artist's creative aspirations. To mark the new edition, a thoughtful perspective was provided in a brief contribution by Robert Frank." Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 102063
