About this Item

Abbott's subjects were people in the artistic and literary worlds during her time in Paris, including this well known image of Beach. Our photograph bears the photographer's stamp and pencil signature on verso, 'Berenice Abbott." Sylvia Beach (1887-1962), born Nancy Woodbridge Beach, was an American bookseller and publisher who lived most of her life in Paris, where she was a leading expatriate figure between World Wars I and II. She founded the iconic English language bookshop in Paris, Shakespeare and Company, which she permanently closed in 1941 during the German occupation. She and her bookstore gained considerable attention after publishing James Joyce's "Ulysses" in 1922. A new bookshop was opened in 1951 in Paris originally called Le Mistral, but renamed Shakespeare and Company in 1964 in honor of the late Sylvia Beach. Abbott closed her Paris studio and returned to the United States in 1929 after a trip to New York City showed the city's photogenic qualities. Very slight bend in one margin corner and wear at another margin corner tip, neither involving the body of the photograph. The photograph is somewhat grainy, gray tones at upper corners. Repair to small area on the nose and forehead, both in the negative. A good Modern Print Signed of one of Abbott's well known photographs. Bookseller Inventory # 4114
