Internally clean as could be, with no writing or markings of any kind. Oblong quarto, the text by Edwin Denby. Purportedly 500 copies issued, although, given the book's continued scarcity, it's been thought that this number many be inflated. Seller Inventory # 17042

About this Item: J.J. Augustin, Publisher, New York, 1945. Boards in Dust Jacket, Boxed. Condition: Very Good -. First Edition. 144pp, 104 illustratIions in b&w gravure. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Designed by Alexey Brodovitch. "Ballet" is renowned late graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch's iconic 1945 book of photographic vignettes capturing eleven performances by The Ballets Russes between 1935 and 1937. Noted for the innovative-at-the-time use of murky shadows and blurred dancers bathed in light, these arresting images of the likes of pricipals Leonide Massine, Tamara Toumanova, Irina Baronova, and more are accompanied by New York poet and dance critic Edwin Denby's brief but cogent text. An internally bright, handsome example of the first and only edition of this uncommon classic (cited on pages 240-241 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I, pages 136-137 of The Hassleblad Center's "The Open Book: A History of the Photographic Book from 1878 to the Present", and pages 110-113 of "The Book of 101 Books") showing a bit of typical light age-toning to the pages, a slight dent through the lower foredge corner, wear to the top of the spine, and a previous owner's name in ink on the front pastedown. It's highly sulfurous chipboard covers are lightly browned, spotted, and a bit worn. The book's striking, notoriously fragile original paper dust jacket designed by Brodovitch is lacking, but has been replaced with a facsimile jacket meticulously executed by Woonsocket, Rhode Island's esteemed Dragonfly Bindery. It is housed in the Bindery's lavish custom brown cloth-over-boards clamshell presentation box with pastedowns reproducing the "Ballet" logo on the front cover and spine. All in all, this is a sharp, internally solid copy of one of the most lauded post-war American photography books aided by the addition of its jacket and presentation box that looks far nicer in hand than it describes.

About this Item: J.J. Augustin, New York, 1945. Hardcover, dust jacket. Condition: Very Good. First edition. FIRST EDITION of Brodovitch's masterpiece; of profound influence in the history of photography and photobooks. "Although known primarily as a mentor and patron of photographers, due in large part to his position as art director and graphic designer at Harper's Bazaar, Alexey Brodovitch also made a legendary photobook of his own. Ballet, published in 1945 by J J Augustin in New York, has become a photobook legend for two reasons. Firstly, only a few hundred copies were printed, so the book is more talked about than actually seen. Secondly, the volume was extremely radical, both in terms of the images themselves and their incorporation into the design and layout. "The 104 pictures in Ballet had been taken by Brodovitch between 1935 and 1937. He photographed ballet companies visiting New York, including the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo, with whom he worked in Paris in the 1920s. Brodovitch shot the photographs with a 35 mm Contax camera, during both rehearsals and performances, by available light, hand-held, and using shutter speeds as slow as a fifth of a second or more. This resulted in blurred images of the moving dancers and in high-contrast, grainy negatives exhibiting burnt-out areas of flare from the stage lighting. These pictures totally violated the accepted conventions of good photographic technique, which demanded a sharp rendition of the subject and a wide, smooth tonal scale. Far from trying to mitigate these shortcomings, Brodovitch deliberately exaggerated them. He printed on high-contrast paper, bleached areas with the chemical ferricyanide to create more contrast, and enlarged tiny portions of the negative to increase grain - familiar strategies in the 1950s and 60s, but not in the 1940s. "Brodovitch's layout was as radical as his pictures. He divided the book into eleven segments, each corresponding to a ballet. Every section was laid out in a continuous strip, each image bled across its own page, so that a double-page spread can often be read as a single panorama, and the whole section like a strip of movie film. This gives the book a vibrancy and a fluidity that perfectly captures the motion of the dance. Ballet is one of the most successful attempts at suggesting motion in photography, and certainly one of the most cinematic and dynamic photobooks ever published" (Parr/Badger, Vol 1; 240-1). Roth 101. Housed in a spectacular custom box by noted book artist Sjoerd Hofstra. New York: J J Augustin, 1945. Text by Edwin Denby. 104 black and white photographs. Oblong folio (8 3/4 x 11 x 1/4 in), original boards, original French fold dust jacket; custom half-leather box. Dust jacket with a few small spots of soiling and light wear to spine ends and corners; handsome small bookseller sticker ("Librairie Fischbacher") on rear flap. Interior fine. An outstanding copy of one of the most beautiful and important books in the history of photography. Seller Inventory # 2261

A well-preserved copy of an extremely fragile book with most of the rare slipcase. First edition of 500 copies. Alexey Brodovitch (b. Ogolitchi, Russia 1898 1971), played a crucial role in introducing the United States to a radically simplified, modern graphic design style forged in Europe in the 1920s from various vanguard art and design movements. As graphic designer and art director of Harper s Bazaar between 1934 and 1958 he redefined the possibilitis of what could be achieved in a page layout, and through his Design Laboratory workshop classes, he mentored and influenced a generation of photographers including Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Robert Frank, Lisette Model, Garry Winogrand, Marvin Israel, and Tony Ray-Jones. Ballet is Alexey Brodovitch s masterpiece of cinematic sequencing and design, the only book that he produced with his own photographs. It established an influential template for the photographically-illustrated book and remains a touchstone of twentieth-century photography bookmaking. It contains photographs taken between 1935 and 1937 by Brodovitch of various international ballet companies whilst they were performing in New York. Initially, his intention was to capture images of the performances for souvenir purposes , but the He photographed the dancers from behind the stage during performances and rehearsals, using a 35mm camera with slow film in available light. Later he enlarged small sections of selected frames and employed various darkroom techniques to bleach and fade certain areas and to further emphasise the contrast and grain of the images. Due to its small print run Ballet received limited commercial exposure and does not appear to have been sold through many bookshops, though its influence was widely felt. Jane Livingstone and other critics have suggested that a great number of the copies that did find their way into circulation were distributed by Brodovitch himself to friends and colleagues. Its scarcity was exacerbated when fires in 1956 and 1959 destroyed much of Brodovitch s working archive and library including most of his own remaining copies of Ballet.
