    Folio. (17 x 12 1/2 inches). [6] preliminary pages followed by [14]pp. of text. 12 original mounted photographs, printed on Dessonville paper by Ansel Adams, various sizes to 9 x 6 1/2 inches, each with a corresponding caption leaf. Publisher's tan morocco backed orange cloth, spine with raised bands in six compartments, marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom morocco backed slipcase. From an edition of 108 numbered copies signed by the author and the photographer, containing magnificent photographs by Ansel Adams. Possibly the most famous of modern photographic works on the West, Taos Pueblo was a collaboration between the young photographer, Ansel Adams, and one of the most evocative writers on the Southwest, Mary Austin. An elegant design by the Grabhorn Press provides a counterpoint to Adams' photographs of the adobe Pueblo. The book distilled the romance and naturalism that many Americans found in the Indian pueblos of New Mexico, and defined the style that was to make Adams the most popular of photographers of the American West. "It was at Taos and Santa Fe that Ansel Adams first saw the Southwest. The time was the spring of 1927. His visit resulted in a Grabhorn Press book now of legendary rarity. It includes Ansel Adams' photographs and Mary Austin's essay on Taos Pueblo. Genius has never been more happily wed. Nowhere else did she write prose of such precise and poetical authority . Their Taos Pueblo is a true and beautiful book by two consummate artists" (Ansel Adams: Photographs of the Southwest, 1970, p. xxv). Produced in a small edition, the book is difficult to obtain today. This example is signed by both Austin and Adams and is in beautiful condition. One of the greatest books produced by the Grabhorn Press and featuring beautiful photographs by Ansel Adams, it is a landmark of American photographic depiction of the Southwest.

    No Binding. Condition: Fine. Gelatin silver print, the negative c. 1950, image/sheet 8-1/2 x 6-1/2 in. (21.6 x 16.5 cm), mounted on cream board 12 x 10 in. (30.5 x 25.4 cm); printed by Adams c. 1960; signed in ink (mount, recto, below lower right corner of image); titled in pencil, with CCP and AAPRT stamps and other notations (mount, verso). Exemplary condition. Among the tributes on p. 84 of the 1965 Aperture monograph, of which this image is the frontispiece, Adams says of his friend, mentor and colleague: "Weston is, in the real sense, one of the few great creative artists of today. He has recreated the mother-forms and forces of nature; he has made these forms eloquent of the fundamental unity of the world. His work illuminates man's journey toward perfection of the spirit." Literature: Nancy Newhall (ed.), Edward Weston Photographer: The Flame of Recognition (Rochester: Aperture Inc., 1965), frontispiece. John Szarkowski, Ansel Adams at 100 (Boston: Little, Brown and Co., 2001) (the touring centennial exhibition organized by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), p. 24 and fig. 14. Provenance: Center for Creative Photography, University of Arizona (no. D15x28), given by the photographer alongside the Ansel Adams Archive as an unaccessioned duplicate intended to benefit the endowment. Examples of this image are rare. Apart from the four archive prints at CCP (with incrementally different tonalities and croppings) and the print in the encyclopedic Lane Collection gifted to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in 2018, no print has been found, inter alia, at MMA, MoMA, NGA, Art Institute Chicago, MFA Houston, Getty or LACMA, or in the former Library Collection assembled by Adams for Polaroid. In his magisterial centennial monograph Szarkowski compares this image to a Holbein. Signed by Author(s).

    Condition: Fine. A Collection of 7 Typed Signed Letters from Ansel Adams to Nick Dean, presented in three custom boxes, as follows: Group of 5 Typed Letters, Signed by Ansel Adams, in custom box. Hawaii and California, 1958. Five typed letters, all of them signed by Ansel Adams, with his handwritten corrections and asides. (And, too charming not to mention: Where letters have punch-holes for a 3-ring binder, Adams doodles faces around the holes). Most are one page with text on both sides, two are one page with text on the recto only. Dated 4 February 1958 to 7 July 1958, some are typed on Memos from Honolulu, others on Adams' personal stationery, imprinted with his San Francisco address. Adams covers the gamut -- from the personal to the professional, from the highly technical to the more philosophical. He remarks on his readings (Dylan Thomas) and also writes, "I am terribly worried about photography and my/our place in it. The MMA business under Steichen is a very depressing and destructive situation," but he also talks excitedly about film, different types of cameras, and darkroom chemistry and techniques. Includes an interesting list compiled by Adams for Dean, of his nominations for an upcoming photography exhibition -- it offers 28 photographers, 18 of which have little checkmarks in red ink next to them. Marginalia reveals the checkmarks to mean "AA choice -- Shhh!" Adams' passion for photography as well as the landscape are revealed again and again, throughout. One aside: "All Washington is trembling with abject fear! I sent off a telegram in the form of a blast to the Secretaries of the Interior and Commerce and to the Director of the NPS on the Tenaya Lake desecration. The battle is joined! I could not take any more of it. Tell Rosy to get the locals ready for a big fight!" / Typed Letter Signed by Ansel Adams. San Francisco, 1961. Three pages typed on the rectos only, the first on Adams' personal stationery (imprinted with his name, San Francisco address, and phone number) and the last two on plain white paper. Signed by Adams, with a few handwritten asides and corrections. A dense, wonderful letter, addressed "Dear Nick and Zabette." Adams talks about the construction of his house in Carmel ("road entrance about 1500 feet down the road from Edward Weston's place.") and his rough year ("I have been low in imagination and only medium in health"), but the tone is overwhelmingly introspective, philosophical, serious, and kind. Adams discusses the state of Modern Photography and Art at length, what he feels his early influences and "breaks" were, and how to make a living at creative photography while staying enthusiastic and true to oneself. Compelling and touching. In fine condition, housed in a lavish custom box (cloth, backed in green morocco, with gilt-stamped lettering on spine). / Typed letter signed by Ansel Adams. California, 1962. Two full pages, typed letter, signed "Ansel," with his handwritten corrections and asides, dated March 17, 1962. On Adams' personal stationery, imprinted with his name, address (24th Avenue, San Francisco), and phone number. Addressed "Dear Nick," Adams congratulates him on an upcoming exhibit, discusses a Polaroid book, cameras (Type 49, Type 55 P/N), the completion of his house in Carmel, health and injuries (or lack thereof), a De Cordova exhibit (and Nick's critique of it), and then goes on to examine the state of photography ("commercial photography is getting worse.") and other photographers (including Minor, "Jerry," and Don Worth). Perhaps best of all, Adams' thoughts on Art are interspersed throughout, including (but certainly not limited to), "I am beginning to think that the trouble with Art is when it becomes Art!" A wonderful letter, revealing both the personal and professional sides of a renowned American photographer. In fine condition, housed in a blue cloth chemise with gilt-stamped leather spine label. / Overall, a spectacular collection -- all letters are in fine condition, housed i.

    custom folder. Condition: Very Good. First edition. A LONG LETTER TO A FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHER WITH REVEALING TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESS. Written by Adams to fellow photographer Nicholas Dean, this letter engages many topics: first listing off a variety of impressive engagements and exhibits the two were involved with at the time, then settling finally on a detailed section on photographic techniques and tips. Adams explains first that he was arranging the logistics of a film about his life with art curator Beaumont (Newhall) which had been officially released the year before (1958). Then Adams goes on to congratulate Dean for his recent exhibition - a collection of photographs of the Boston Symphony Orchestra - and makes reference to an article called "Swell Egg" written in The New Yorker in October 1953 about the important American landscape photographer Paul Caponigro. Even in the first sentences, it becomes clear how well-ensconced Adams was in the photography world, how up-to-date he was with new developments and exhibits, for "photography was his calling, his métier, his raison d'être." ( Britannica ). Yet, what Adams seems most particularly interested in in this letter, however, is the light meter. These analog devices were used by photographers to 'read' the light in a situation, and then transfer the exposure information to a camera. Here, Adams makes reference specifically to the Weston meter - the most popular instrument of use by professionals at the time. In a marvelous moment of self-reference, the photographer uses the term "Zone VI value," while trying to explain to Dean how non-Weston meters misrepresent optimal "brightnesses." These "zone values" (numbered 0-X) were, in fact, formulated by Adams and Fred Archer, another celebrated American photographer, as part of the Zone System, a photographic technique for determining optimal film exposure and development. Based on a meticulous study of sensitometry (scholarship around which reached as far back as the 19th century) and written up extensively by Adams in one of his ten manuals (The Negative), the Zone System allowed for photographers to define a relationship between the way they visualized the photographic subject and the final results. This invention became so widely-used that starting in 1966, the scale was printed directly onto the Weston light meters. Adam's counsel to Dean, moreover, extended beyond the pre-photographic moment of light measurement. At the top of the letter are a series of instructions on how to develop photos - what developer to use, how long to sit in the water, at what angle to place the photograph in the tray. What this letter brings clearly to the fore, then, is Adam's "technical mastery [.] More than any creative photographer, before or since, he reveled in the theory and practice of the medium." ( The Ansel Adams Gallery ). The letter, typed on one 8.5x11 inch sheet of Adams's stationery with "ANSEL ADAMS" printed in red in large type at the top and his San Francisco address below it to the right, is dated December 7 '59 and reads in full: Dear Nick - - Good to get your two letters. This is just a rush reply because they are working out that Television movie with me (Beaumont is here) and things are hectic! Your picture which I returned was excellent ! Cheers for Symp. Hall exhibit! Camponiegro [sic] swell egg - have 3 prints of his for Polaroid collection. This "reading-in" business - Brrrrrrr!! You are still a bit haywire with the Meter business !!! The Weston is a pretty accurate device to read brightness in c/ft2. Pointing the meter down is merely a crutch and would help only with dark-gray pavement or grass. The fact that other meters give accurate readings when the Weston gives 1/2 optimum reading merely shows that those other meters are calibrated to overcome the statistical "average" brightnesses. However - read a single gray (or white, or dark) surface with those other meters and you will get near Zone VI value. The question is merely this - do you w.
