  5. 114434

    New York.

    With a foreword by H. G. Wells.

    First edition, first impression, with the rare dust jacket: a remarkable survival, we have traced just two copies at auction since 1975. Coburn's New York is one of the cornerstone photobooks of the 20th century and considerably more scarce than the photographer's groundbreaking sister publication, London, put out in the same format in 1909. "Of the two books, it is the New York volume that might be considered the more proto-modernist in spirit, not only because New York itself was the most palpably modern city, epitomized by that great leitmotif of early modernist photography, the skyscraper, but also because the form of the city, as created by these large, monolithic buildings, pushed Coburn towards a more radical way of seeing" (Parr & Badger).

  6. A Night in London.

    A Night in London.

    Story of a London Night in Sixty-Four Photographs. Introduced by James Bone.
    First edition, first impression. There is some speculation that the scarcity of this publication is in part due to enemy action; the publisher was badly hit by the fire in Paternoster Row, and copies of this delicate and influential work are uncommon. Learn More

  8. In Flagrante.

    In Flagrante.

    With an essay by John Berger & Sylvia Grant.
    First edition, first impression, of the uncommon hardback issue. In Flagrante, Killip's "subjective book about my time in England" during its "de-industrialisation" (Killip's preface) is one of the greatest photobooks of the late 20th century, "a dark, pessimistic journey, perhaps even a secret odyssey, where rigorous documentary is suffused with a contemplative inwardness, a rare quality in modern photography" (Gerry Badger).

  15. German soldiers photograph album of service with a Flak unit in occupied Norway.

    German soldiers photograph album of service with a Flak unit in occupied Norway.

    A superbly presented and exhaustively (often humorously) captioned album of original photographs compiled by a young member of a German Flak unit posted to Norway in May 1940, shortly after the invasion. The first few photographs record his initial service in the Reichsarbeitsdienst, Abteilung 215, "W" company, from 4 April to 25 October 1938. In December he appears to have been transferred to the Düsseldorf Flak-Kaserne, and then the Münsterlager training camp. Learn More
