Descripción New York City, NY: The Museum Of Modern Art (MOMA), 1970. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 65 pages. Published in 1970. Posthumous collection of black-and-white photographs on subject. One of the great photographic discoveries of our time. Review Copy. Review Material laid-in. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out upon publication. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Joseph Bourke Del Valle: Oversize-volume format. Khaki cloth boards with gilt titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by E. J. Bellocq. Preface by Lee Friedlander. Interview by John Szarkowski. Each plate is reproduced directly from the original prints made by Lee Friedlander. Printed in duotone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by The Meridien Gravure Company Connecticut to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition of the same name held at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in 1970. Presents E. J. Bellocq's "Storyville Portraits: Photographs From The New Orleans Red-Light District, Circa 1912". One of the most unforgettable sequences of vernacular photographs by a largely unknown photographer ever re-discovered. "Taken around 1912, the photographs constitute the only surviving work of the photographer whose work is now considered among the most intriguingly and beguilingly erotic female nude photographs ever made. All of the subjects who posed for E. J. Bellocq were prostitutes and the combination of uninhibited sensuality and sweet candor makes these portraits unique in the history of photography" (MOMA). One of the most serendipitous "finds" in the annals of photography, the glass plates were discovered and acquired by Lee Friedlander, who printed them for MOMA and this book. Bellocq was clearly a regular paying patron of his subjects, which is how he gained photographic (aside from sexual) access to and intimacy with them. After being out-of-print for a very long time despite multiple subsequent printings, Friedlander subsequently reissued the book in 1996, in a larger format, and in response to critical and popular demand. Still, there is obviously something quite special about this pioneering volume: It's our very first look at a bygone and up until sixty years later, long-forgotten slice of American photographic and sexual histories, intertwined. The basis of "Pretty Baby" by Louis Malle, with the nubile (and breathtakingly beautiful) Brooke Shields in her debut film appearance as a 12-year-old prostitute and Keith Carradine as E. J. Bellocq. An absolute "must-have" title for E. J. Bellocq collectors. This is a Review Copy. The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Review Material, now rare, is laid-in. This title is a great photography book. As far as we know, this is the only Review Copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and despite its imperfection (slight creasing and wear on DJ corners and spine) is still in especially fine condition: Every single internal page is clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. All in all, we have not seen a copy as well-preserved and well-cared-for as this. Please note: Almost all other copies available online are subsequent printings and have major flaws. A rare copy thus. 34 duotone plates. One of the most important American photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.
