About this Item: Simon & Schuster in collaboration with Editions VERVE of Paris, New York, 1952. Hardcover. Condition: Very good condition. First edition. 126 stunning full page black and white photographs from around the world by the French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 - 2004), considered to be the founder of photojournalism, who developed the method of candid or street photography from which the expression "the decisive moment" derives. In his own words, "Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera." (Washington Post, 1957).At the rear of the folio is the following information on the production of the volume: "This book, with a cover designed and executed especially for it by Henri Matisse, is a selection of 126 photographs from the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. The French Edition by Verve (Images a la Sauvette) and the American Edition by Simon and Schuster (The Decisive Moment), were conceived and composed by Teriade with the collaboration of Marguerite Lang. The engravings and printing is the work of the master printers Draeger Freres of Paris. It was completed the 22nd of July, 1952."Folio, 126 photographs, text, Index. White illustrated boards, designs by Henri Matisse. Spine toned, small 1 1/4" chip at head of spine, rear board very faintly toned. Small previous owner signature top of front free end paper. With the Captions brochure loosely inserted. OCLC: 6557867. Seller Inventory # 18514

First Edition. 14-1/2 by 10-1/2 inches. 126 full-page black-and-white photographs. *** 'Within the canon of European photography books it would be difficult to find one more famous, revered and influential as Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Decisive Moment' --- Jeffrey Ladd in an essay accompanying the re-release of this great photobook. *** This is the original 1952 American edition whose translated title, 'The Decisive Moment', came to define a photography movement. The original book, with its destinctive cover design by Henri Matisse, is a fragile production almost devoid of text -- the captions were printed in a separate booklet to accompany but not detract from the images. First edition (first printing). Overall, a very good copy with the original dust jacket and captions pamphlet. *** The book shows mild edge wear, with some tanning to the spine, and a former owner signature on title page. The jacket has some edge and corner wear and a few small edge chips. The front panel is tanned at top and front edges. Captions supplied in a separate stapled pamphlet, laid in. Better than most copies. [JSP02; JSP04; 206952]. Seller Inventory # 206952

About this Item: Simon and Schuster, New York, 1952. Condition: Very good. First edition. One of the most important photography books ever printed. Cartier-Bresson has selected 126 photos -at random, he assures us -as an expression of his selection of the decisive moment; the point at which the photographer destroys the coating of the film. With its dust-wrapper commissioned expressly from Matisse, this is the flower of mid-century photography books. Published jointly with Éditions Verve of Paris. With the original book of captions laid in. The front board splays a little, and the dust-wrapper is, as nearly always, rather toned, and a little chipped and torn at the peripheries. Still, a very good example of this epochal book. Seller Inventory # 600007

The design was undertaken by Teriade, with the collaboration of Marguerite Lang, and the photographs engraved and printed in heliogravure by Draeger Frères. This state of the dust jacket prints comments on the rear inner flap by Monroe Wheeler, Philippe Halsman, Jacob Deschin, et al. In his important introduction to this collection, one of the defining books in the field of photography from the immediate post WWII years, Cartier- Bresson sums up the principles that would inspire the work of countless photographers for the next half-century or more: "There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment . To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression." The initial edition consisted of approximately 3000 French language copies and 7000 English language copies, and like any number of significant books, received highly positive reviews but sold only a slow trickle of copies. Because of the nature of the binding and dust jacket, copies in agreeable condition, as here, are few and far between. The first faithful reprint was finally published in late 2014.

About this Item: New York: Simon & Schuster in collaboration with Éditions Verve of Paris, 1952, 1952. Folio. Original decorated boards designed by Matisse. With the dust jacket and the booklet of captions laid in as required. Spine age toned, joints split about 3cm from the head, cream dust jacket a little darkened, rubbed and chipped to edges, foot of spine split, head of spine with small loss. First US edition, first printing. The photographer's finest and definitive collection of images. With the photographer's signed presentation inscription. "To Dick Schuler who gets brilliance out of our darkness Henri for Magnum HCB". The recipient Richard 'Dick' Schuler was a German emigre photographer and printer, and principal at Compo Photo-Color (Compo Photo Service inc.), a photographic lab in New York City who specialised in making exhibition prints and large photo-murals. Compo were responsible for printing a number of important exhibitions including Edward Steichen's 'The Family of Man' (1955) at the Museum of Modern Art, who frequently used the firm to make large exhibition prints. In his preface Cartier-Bresson writes, "To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression if the shutter was released at the decisive moment, you have instinctively fixed a geometric pattern without which the photograph would have been both formless and lifeless." After 1946 Cartier-Bresson ceased printing his own photographs, preferring to spend his time taking photographs or drawing. Instead he relied on a series of expert printers whose work he would strictly supervise. In 1966 Cartier-Bresson retired from active participation in Magnum Photos, the cooperative agency he had co-founded in 1947. The inscription therefore suggests that this book was inscribed within fourteen years of its publication and represents high praise indeed for the recipient. Parr & Badger I, 208-9; Roth, p. 134.

About this Item: New York: Simon and Schuster, 1952. First U.S. Edition. Folio. Caption booklet laid in. Boards and dust jacket designed by Matisse. 126 images, lusciously printed, of Cartier-Bresson's early work. Only few photobooks in history can match the influence of "The Decisive Moment". Since its publication in 1952, it has remained one of the pillars of photography. (Parr / Badger, v1, 208-209; Roth 134-135; Open Book 154-155). Light shelf wear, hint of creasing along the fragile spine and at the spine ends; a brilliant, close to fine copy in a fine jacket, bright and crisp. Among the nicest copies I have handled. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Seller Inventory # 24587
