About this Item

Octavo in offwhite wrapeprs; 144 unnumbered pages: 110 illustrations ; 21 x 23 cm. In English. || Contents: The world -- The flesh -- The devil -- Home. "My photographs are both real and surreal," Charles Harbutt writes of this book. I don't think of this book as a portfolio of my best work, but rather as an integrated set of photographs that express where I have been psychologically, emotionally, physically. In a way it is Bloom walking in the world. The loneliness, alienation, and fears, the lusts and sexual sorrows, the difficulties of sustaining emotional relationships. The damage people do to each other and the delight they can and do give one another. Throughout the desire to break free. At the same time it is about what is specifically photographic about photography." -back cover. Very good(+) copy. Wrappers are moderately edge worn but have no tears; some creases to wrappers with one larger creases on the cover along the open edge; small brown stains maybe coffee and a light coffee wring on the cover; otherwise moderately soiled wrappers but all text and illustrations are legible; 2" black scuff on lower back cover which has rubbed a little of the text, but it's still legible; lightly bumped head and foot of spine; a few foxing stains to rear endpaper; it sounds like a lot but it's still a nice paperback copy; very lightly sunned pages, and more importantly the images, are clean, bright and free of marks, creases and foxing; binding is tight and square; edges are clean.
