Editions Arts et Metiers Graphiques, Paris, 1947. Spiral binding, excellent condition despite the front cover being detached (as often is the case). With small closed tear on back cover, some light spotting as typical on the color plates. But the heliogravures are all there and in fine condition. 115 photos, adverts. French text. The last issue of one of the most legendary French photographic journals ever published. Published in a small and limited print run in heliogravure, and many issues being being pulled apart and destroyed. Individual prints from the publication are now being sold as "originals" on eBay and other places for nearly the cost of the entire magazine. Now considered a modern photography classic. Wonderful production: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers in spiral binding. Photographs by Ansel Adams, Brassai, Penn, Doisneau, Izis, Nora Dumas, Bill Brandt, Willy Ronis, Albin Guillot, etc.Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
