Re-presents, in the ultimate collectible format, Bruce Davidson's "East 100th Street". His masterpiece. "For two years in the 1960's, Bruce Davidson photographed one block in East Harlem. He went back day after day, standing on sidewalks, knocking on doors, asking permission to photograph a face, a child, a room, a family. Through his skill, his extraordinary vision, and his deep respect for his subjects, Davidson's portraits of the people of East 100th Street is a powerful statement of the dignity and humanity that is in all people" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Bruce Davidson collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Bruce Davidson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It also comes with a stunningly beautiful 10 X 8 inch original photographic print, also very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on verso by the photographer. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 149 tritone plates, 1 original print. Selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Book of 101 Books" and "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE DAVIDSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0971368147. Bookseller Inventory # 17925
