Scarce and collectible final edition of Photographie, published in 1947 by the French periodical Editions Arts et Metiers Graphiques. Only 11 editions of the Photographie series were published, 1947 being the final year. They were published in limited print runs and are now highly collectible.

This edition features 115 stunning photographs from the creme-de-la-creme of photographers of this period: Ansel Adams, George Platt-Lynes, Fritz Henle, Helen Levitt, Brassai, Bill Brandt, Irving Penn, Beaumont Newhall, Minor White, Barbara Morgan, Robert Doisneau, Horst, Edgerton and many more. Printed in rich, velvety photogravure, these images are iconic, striking and just so beautiful. Large format, pages measuring approx 9 1/2 x 12 inches.
Introduction in French by Pierre Scize. Full index at rear of the images including technical details such as camera used, exposure details, film used, etc.

CONDITION: There is a little water damage to this book, mostly affecting the inside of the covers and the introductory pages which do not contain photographs. The staining is mostly along the bottom of these pages with very slight rippling and does not affect the legibility in any way. The water staining affects the rest of the book only along the very bottom of the pages and is quite minor. Most pages have a border there and so very few actual images are stained. There is also some minor age yellowing in these border areas throughout the book. Some pages show slight ink offset to adjoining page. Cover is still completely attached although with some wear along spiral binding. Small hole in front cover (about half an inch long) next to spine. Cover has light scratches and rubbing but is quite good. Previous owner's stamp on inside front cover.

I wanted to use my 5 Etsy photos to show the beauty of the contents rather than condition issues, so if you'd like to see something specific in regards to the above, just message me and I can email you pics.

Shipping costs are for standard mail, please message me if you'd prefer registered mail and I can send you a quote.
