Item Description: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1960. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First printing, 1960. Quarto, cloth in slipcase, lacking jacket, INSCRIBED 'To Arnold Varga, with best wishes, Irving Penn' and also with a heavy large calling card from Peter H. Schub, Beekman Place, NY, 'with best regards St. Peter.' Book is very good with some spotting, smudging to covers, contents also very good, occasional finger soil, slipcase very good, modest edgewear. The recipient was a well known graphic artist in advertising, part of the 1996 Hall of Fame of the Art Directors Club and named Director of the Year in 1959 by the National Society of Art Directors. Photographer Duane Michals, a childhood friend from McKeesport -- a suburb of Pittsburgh -- recalled that he 'worked in this little steel town, without any real nuruturing and bloomed into a major talent.' So, a nice link between a fine arts photographer who occasional did commercial and advertising work with one of the major advertising men of his day. Bookseller Inventory # C000026307

Beige cloth-covered boards with title stamped in black on spine; with printed dust jacket; missing original slipcase. Photographs and text by Irving Penn. Introduction by Alexander Liberman. Captions and text collaboration by Rosemary Blackmon. Includes an index of plates. 184 pp., with 39 four-color plates and numerous black-and-white plates, finely printed in Switerland by Camera Publishers, C. J. Bucher, Ltd., Lucerne. 13 x 9-3/4 inches. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), and in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004).]. Fine in Very Good dust jacket (1-inch closed tear at the top rear flap, moderate wear to the extremities, toning to the spine); missing slipcase. From Vince Aletti: "Irving Penn's first book, Moments Preserved, is an overview of an astonishingly busy career -- one that began in earnest when he was hired by Alexander Liberman in 1943 to be the art director's assistant at Vogue.Penn spent a month in Lucerne, Switzerland, overseeing the printers at C. J. Bucher, who had produced Avedon's Observations the previous year. For Moments Preserved, they worked with gravure, letterpress, and offset processes on separate paper stocks and had casts of Condé Nast's original engraving plates flown in from New York for the book's color reproductions. When the first gravures didn't have the requisite depth, those pages went back to press and another image layer was laid on top of the originals.The book's first edition print run of 20,000 was divided into French, Italian, German, and English editions.Subtitled Eight Essays in Photographs and Words, Moments Preserved gathers Penn's vast variety of enthusiasms -- mostly for the vast variety of humanity -- and slots them into categories by nationality: the French, the Italians, the English, the Americans. Though most of the sections include fashion studies, still lifes, and impressionist scenes.they have in common the photographer's deftly understated portraits, printed here in the subtlest gravure. Penn reinvented the classic daylight studio portrait for a more casual time, undercutting its formality but heightening its potential as a revealing performance.". Bookseller Inventory # 106711

Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear. The slipcase is in near fine condition with just a touch of wear. A very sharp example.

His work serves as an example of excellent photography even today. Moments Preserved is his first publication. Irving Penn said befittingly of his work, "[s]ensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is one they would like to show the world. Very often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe" (1975). His photography is reverently held at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, both of which also hold collections of personal materials that relate to Penn's career.

Item Description: Simon and Schuster, New York, 1960. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. This is a signed first edition, first printing of the Irving Penn's first and most famous photobook "Moments Preserved" published by Simon and Schuster, New York, in 1960. Subtitled "Eight Essays in Photographs and Words", "Moments Preserved" gathers Penn's vast variety of enthusiasm ¿ mostly for the vast variety of humanity ¿ and slots them into categories by nationality: the French, the Italians, the English, and the Americans. Though most of these sections include fashion studies, still lifes, and the impressionist scents, they have in common the photographer's deftly understated portraits, printed here in subtlest gravure. Penn reinvented the classic daylight studio portrait for a more casual time, undercutting its formality but heightening its potential as a revealing performance. (Vince Aletti from "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century") Measuring approximately 13.5 x 10 inches, the book is bound in beige cloth covered boards with a printed dust jacket protected by a mylar cover and is housed in a photographically illustrated laminated cardboard slipcase. The book is in FINE condition with a neat gift inscription. The dust jacket is in FINE condition with very superficial soiling. The slip case is in Near Fine condition with some surface and corner wear as well as some minor soiling to the back to the slipcase. Overall, this is an exceptional signed copy of a classic photobook that is very difficult to find in this condition. The book has been boldly signed and dated by Irving Penn on the first free endpaper and is inscribed to the famous art dealer, Mark Kelman. Cited in "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century" by Andrew Roth. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 000084

Item Description: 1960. First Edition. "PENN, Irving. Moments Preserved. New York: Simon and Schuster, (1960). Large quarto, original beige cloth, original dust jacket, original pictorial slipcase. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6200.First edition of Pennís first book, an especially scarce presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by him to the noted Swedish art critic and author who would become a longtime correspondent, "For Ulf Hard af Segerstad, With all good wishes, Irving Penn, New York 1962." Accompanying the book is Penn's autograph note, penned and signed by him on a card printed with his New York address: "Oct. 1, 1962. Dr. Mr. Ulf Hard af Segerstad, I have just recently been looking at clippings of various reviews of my late book Moments Preserved [underlining in original]. My wife, who is Swedish, translated your review for me with great care. I don't wish to embarrass you, but I would like you to know that it was the only review written on either side of the Atlantic which understood my aim, and was generous enough to say that it had been in some measure achieved. With many thanks and good wishes, Sincerely yours, Irving Penn."This very scarce presentation/association copy of Moments Preserved, Penn's groundbreaking first publication, is warmly inscribed by him to the noted Scandinavian art critic and author, Dr. Ulf Hard af Segerstad, who became a longtime friend and correspondent with the photographer, and would co-author a volume in tribute to Penn's wife, the renowned Swedish-born model, titled, Photographs: A Donation in Memory of Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn (1996). This memorable copy of Moments Preserved also includes a laid-in autograph note, penned and signed by Penn on the recto and verso of a card printed with his New York address. Dated October 1, 1962, Penn's signed autograph note likely signals the beginning of the friendship between the two men, with Penn clearly indicating his appreciation for Segerstad's review of Moments Preserved and affectionately mentioning his wife, Lise Fonssagrives-Penn, who translated Segerstad's review for Penn. Lise Fonssagrives-Penn, who married the photographer in 1950, remains heralded as "one of the most elegant women ever to wear a dress. She was at the height of her career in 1949 when Time put her on its cover She was also the apple of Irving Penn's eye" (Vogue). To Alexander Liberman of Conde Nast Publications, publisher of Vogue, "the Penns represented 'an extraordinary relationship between a photographer and a model. She was the inspiration and subject of some of Penn's greatest photographs'" (New York Times). This wonderful inscribed first edition highlights not only Penn's appreciation for Segerstad's review, but also signals an important connection between the photographer, his wife, and Segerstad.
