About this Item: Grabhorn Press, San Francisco, 1930. Folio. (17 x 12 1/2 inches). [6] preliminary pages followed by [14]pp. of text. 12 original 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 half tan morocco over orange cloth, spine with raised bands in six compartments, marbled endpapers (light spotting to the covers, light wear). Housed in a morocco box. From an edition of 108 copies containing magnificent photographs by Ansel Adams, signed by Mary Austin 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 (this copy number 92 of 108), the book is difficult to obtain today. 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.

About this Item: Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1977., 1977. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Signed Limited Edition - #924 of 950. Measuring approximately 18" x 13", the book is a tall folio bound in original half tan calf with orange cloth boards, marbled endpapers, with the original matching slipcase. A total of 950 copies were signed and numbered by Ansel Adams with this being number 924. Provenance: from the library of the noted German photographer Michael Ruetz, with his neat stamp on copyright page. Tiny scrape to spine; a FINE copy. This is a signed, limited edition of "Taos Pueblo" published by the New York Graphic Society, Boston in 1977. Originally published in 1930, "Taos Pueblo" was Ansel Adam's first book and launched his career as arguably the greatest landscape photographer of our time. Featuring 12 gravure reproductions of Adams's photographs as well as woodcut motifs by Valenti Angelo, this limited edition is a faithful reproduction of the original landmark book. "With Taos Pueblo we see a commitment to light and form as the essential building blocks of a picture. Every exposure was made in the most brilliant sunshine which in turn created deep shadows. Sunlight and shadow are at the same time the photographer's friend and foe. Neither films nor papers can record the two extremes of bright sun and deep shadow equally well, and an unhappy tonal compromise is often the result. Rich shadow detail is here realized simultaneously with delicate highlights in a way that proves Adams┐s native sense for the toughest technical problems of the medium, and how to solve them." - Weston J. Naef, The Metropolitan Museum Art. Cited in both "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century" and "The Open Book", "Taos Pueblo" is a landmark photobook and is considered by many to be the greatest pictorial representation of the American West.
