Description:

2nd Printing. Signed. 180 pages. Published in 1979. Book-length account on subject. One of the most important photography books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition in its Second Printing. The First Printing is the Deluxe Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly all of the Later Printings and the Softcover Edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. The book is now rare. A brilliant production by MIT Press: Oversize-volume format in oblong shape. Black cloth boards with white titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Harold E. Edgerton. The Professor of Electrial Engineering at MIT, Edgerton is also one of the legendary inventor/photographers of the 20th century. Text by James R. Killian, Jr. , who was Edgerton's colleague and close friend, and the President of MIT from 1949 to 1959, when the university achieved the global renown it enjoys to this day as the world's greatest institution of higher learning. Printed on glossy stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents "Moments of Vision". "Edgerton's contribution to photography has been immense. His inventions have allowed photographers to work on location and under conditions that had never been possible. 'Moments of Vision' is about Edgerton and his remarkable achievements in stroboscopy and electronic flash photography. The use of Edgerton's electronic flash system has become global (and lunar). His later work in silhouette, night, and underwater photography has allowed photographers to record aspects of the unseen world" (Publisher's blurb). In our Digital Age, it is good to be reminded of the ground-breaking achievement of an iconic figure like Edgerton. His passion for and commitment to photography as science and technology make possible his own photographs and those of all other photographers as art. After all, photography is the one art that will always depend on advances in science and technology. His book is a record of his permanent contributions to the most vital visual medium of our time. An absolute "must-have" title for Harold E. Edgerton collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in green pen-marker on the very first image by the inventor/photographer: "Harold E. Edgerton 1982 Oct 14 Milwaukee". It is also very prominently and beautifully signed in orange pen-marker by James R. Killian, Jr. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few such double-signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/Second Printing (the First Printing is the Deluxe Edition) still available online and despite its imperfection (rubbing, creasing, and wear on the fragile DJ) is still in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. All of the internal pages are in pristine, unread condition. Please note: All copies available online have major flaws as all of them were heavily used by photographers, students, and experts. Given its historical value, this is an accessible and lovely alternative for collectors. A rare signed copy thus. 200 plates. One of the greatest inventor/photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. ISBN 0262050226. Bookseller Inventory #
